Import Excel into MySql Database Without Plugin

This HTML form with the file upload option is used to choose the excel source. On submitting this form, the excel file will be sent to the PHP to parse the data source. This file upload option will only allow the excel files to choose by using the accept attribute. This code also contains the response HTML for displaying the message returned from PHP. This message is shown based on the type of response sent from PHP after excel import.

HTML Code: form.html

Choose CSV File to Import Data

   <form action="import.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <label>Import CSV File:</label>
    <input type="file"  name="filename" id="filename">
    <button type="submit" id="submit" name="submit">Upload</button>

In this PHP code, I specified the array of allowed file type and check the uploaded file type. The excel file is uploaded to a target and its data are parsed using reader functions. It computes the number of sheets and runs a loop to parse data sheet by sheet. For each sheet iteration, I have created a nested loop for parsing data row by row. After reading the non-empty row data, I run the database insert and show the response. 

PHP Code: import.php

$servername = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "";
$dbname = "test";

$conn = mysqli_connect($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) 
 //Import uploaded file to Database
 $handle = fopen($_FILES['filename']['tmp_name'], "r");
 while(($data = fgetcsv($handle)) !== FALSE){
 $sql = "INSERT into testtbl (user_name, first_name, last_name, date_added)
  values('".$data[0]."', '".$data[1]."', '".$data[2]."', '".$date."')";
  mysqli_query($conn, $sql) ;
