I have a rough and ready table as:

mysql> 
mysql> show tables;
+----------------------+
| Tables_in_businesses |
+----------------------+
| 2017july             |
+----------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> 
mysql> describe 2017july;
+--------------+-------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| Field        | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra |
+--------------+-------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
| business     | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| product      | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| unit         | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| house        | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| road         | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |

| phnum        | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| emps         | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| town         | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
| typebusiness | varchar(45) | YES  |     | NULL    |       |
+--------------+-------------+------+-----+---------+-------+
10 rows in set (0.01 sec)

mysql> 

Exporting to LibreOffice et al isn't problematic, but the import directions are only in French. Alternately, the suggested PHP script will import from a data file -- but has a very specific structure.

how should I modify the schema to fit with dolibarr?

Might there be some alternate tool to import customers? I've enable the Projects/Opportunities/Leads and Third parties modules.

Dolibarr is a bit more sophisticated:

mysql> 
mysql> use dolibarr;
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

Database changed
mysql> 
mysql> show tables;

Perhaps copy the structure for llx_societe and load the data there? I'm not even sure what some of the table names mean -- and that seems quite awkward. There must be a tool or idiom I'm missing.

Ah....didn't know that I had to enable the Data Imports plugin to get a wizard:

Here is the page magically translated into English: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.dolibarr.org%2Findex.php%2FImporter_des_donn%25C3%25A9es_avec_OpenOffice.

The quickest way would be to run an SQL command similar this:

INSERT INTO dolibarr.llx_societe SELECT /*choose fields here*/ from businesses.2017july;

Or use the wizard described at https://www.dolibarr.org/57-documentation/features/231-import-export.

There are some tips at https://www.dolibarr.org/forum/12-howto-help/27371-why-is-importing-so-impossibly-difficult#31833.

For me, at least, it took a bit to get it right:

It's in the database. Whether dolibarr will complain remains to be seen. The code_client field is NULL where it should have values, I think.
