comment MySQL CSV LOAD DATA INFILE … doesn't want to load more than 72 lines
Does a different set of data, say the last 100 rows instead of the first 73+, show exactly the same issues?

comment mysql workbench *reverse engineer* is not connecting tables graphically. How to fix?
The database I am looking at ALWAYS has othertablename_id as it is rails, so no guessing required and when I add the lines in manually I do the exact same thing every time, at least for the basic 1 to many's (which is the majority). self-referential's might be tricky.
