Data Import

One of the most common formats of data is in rows and columns on flat files. This spreadsheet format is used for a variety of imports and exports to/from relational databases, so it is easy to retrieve existing data this way.

You can also use this format of data for Neo4j! The LOAD CSV command in Cypher allows us to specify a filepath, headers or not, different value delimiters, and the Cypher statements for how we want to model that tabular data in a graph.

We will walk through the details of how to take any CSV file and import the data into Neo4j easily and quickly.
