Is your CSV file header consists of the following column name userid, password,first_name,last_name,user_group?If yes then it is too easy.Reply and wait for getting complete solution :)

There are lot of solutions on the internet. I found one solution for easy understanding. Please make sure your columns in the CSV file as same as MySql database columns.

Method 1: Using SqlBulkCopy
 const string CSV_CONNECTIONSTRING = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\"{0}\";Extended Properties=\"text;HDR=YES;FMT=Delimited\"";
string CSVpath = "C:\\CSVFiles";  // CSV file Path you can use file choose control
var AllFiles = new DirectoryInfo(CSVpath).GetFiles("*.CSV");
string File_Name = string.Empty;
string ConStr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConStr"].ConnectionString;

for (int i = 0; i < AllFiles.Length; i++)
        File_Name = AllFiles[i].Name;
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        using (OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection(string.Format(CSV_CONNECTIONSTRING, CSVpath)))
            using (OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from [" + File_Name + "]", con))
        using (SqlBulkCopy bulkCopy = new SqlBulkCopy(ConStr))
            bulkCopy.ColumnMappings.Add(0, "Column1");
            bulkCopy.ColumnMappings.Add(1, "Column2");
            bulkCopy.ColumnMappings.Add(2, "Column3");
            bulkCopy.DestinationTableName = "myTable";
            bulkCopy.BatchSize = dt.Rows.Count;
    catch (Exception ex)
        throw ex;

Method 2: Using MySqlBulkLoader

static void Main(string[] args)
            string connStr = "server=localhost;user id=user id;password=password;database=database";
            // MySql Connection Object
            MySqlConnection conn = new MySqlConnection(connStr);

            //  csv file path
            string file = @"filepath";

            // MySQL BulkLoader
            MySqlBulkLoader bl = new MySqlBulkLoader(conn);
            bl.TableName = "tablename";
            bl.FieldTerminator = "|"; This can be {comma,tab,semi colon, or other character}
            bl.LineTerminator = "\n";
            bl.FileName =file; 

                Console.WriteLine("Connecting to MySQL...");

                // Upload data from file
                int count = bl.Load();
                Console.WriteLine(count + " lines uploaded.");

            catch (Exception ex)

         MySqlBulkLoader is very faster than the SqlBulkCopy choice is yours!
