Answer

Probably you are learning because you didn’t check the google before. I recommand to study the following:

https://docs.python.org/3/library/csv.html#csv.DictReader https://docs.sqlalchemy.org/en/14/tutorial/data_insert.html#tutorial-core-insert

So basically you have to do something like this:

from sqlalchemy import insert
import csv

with open('names.csv', newline='') as csvfile:
    reader = csv.DictReader(csvfile)
    for row in reader:
        insert('user_table').values(name=row['name'], fullname=row['fullname'])

Then commit!

Good luck!
