9.5 Adding Summary Fields

Summary fields are calculated fields added to the last row of each column in the imported MySQL table. The drop-down list for each summary field in the resulting worksheet includes functions such as Average, Sum, Min, and Max.


This feature was added in MySQL for Excel 1.3.0.

The Add Summary Fields option (deselected by default) is listed on the Import Data dialog:
