In this post we will see how we can Import data from CSV sheet to Database in Yii.

For this You just have to download a JPhpExcelReader Extension.

$itu = CUploadedFile::getInstance($model,'csv_file');
$data = new JPhpExcelReader($itu->getTempName());

$rows = array();
for($j=1; $j<=$data->sheets[0]['numRows']; $j++) {
if($j == 1){
$header = $data->sheets[0]['cells'][$j];

$rowData = $data->sheets[0]['cells'][$j];
$rows[] = array_combine($header,$rowData);
//Here in $rows you will get all csv sheet data in array format
foreach($rows as $row)

//define model
//fieldnames to save in model
//save data in database
