No. The format of the INSERT command you're using requires a value
*for each column of the table*.

And there's an obvious clue -- entry 429 has 6 fields, 430 has only
5. Too bad PHP apparently doesn't bother to pass back error messages
(or stop entirely on error) or you'd have discovered this as soon as
you hit item 35.  :-)


P.S. you can use LOAD DATA INFILE to bypass this issue entirely...
