There are several applications that can do the bulk of the work for you if you have a mind to use them. Some are expensive (one or two are even worth their asking price) while others are share or freeware.
Use this as your search field in Google:
"access to mysql"
Some of the output results are superb, some of them not so good and it very much depends on how far you want to go without rolling your sleeves up.
PHPMyAdmin can help you input or output to and form CSV files, and you can also use it to easily set up your database, tables, fields, username and password and so on.

The MySQL site has a good overview of the necessary process involved for importing from CSV and similar.
