DEPRECATED - use to_sql

Write records stored in a DataFrame to a SQL database.

Parameters :

frame : DataFrame

name : string

con : DBAPI2 connection

flavor : {‘sqlite’, ‘mysql’}, default ‘sqlite’

The flavor of SQL to use.

if_exists : {‘fail’, ‘replace’, ‘append’}, default ‘fail’

  • fail: If table exists, do nothing.
  • replace: If table exists, drop it, recreate it, and insert data.
  • append: If table exists, insert data. Create if does not exist.

index : boolean, default False

Write DataFrame index as a column


This function is deprecated in favor of to_sql. There are however two differences:

  • With to_sql the index is written to the sql database by default. To keep the behaviour this function you need to specify index=False.
  • The new to_sql function supports sqlalchemy engines to work with different sql flavors.
