PHPMyadmin import CSV creates new table

I am trying to import some data into a MySQL 5.5.31 table from a CSV file using PHPMyadmin 4.0.0.

When I try to import, the import "works" but it creates a new table rather than imports into the current table - the new table is assigned a sequential name by PHPMyadmin and, whilst the data is viewable, the data is not usable as the table does not contain a unique column.

Here is a screenshot of the settings I am using to import which also shows I am trying to import into the table:

And here is the result I get from PHPMyadmin:

Any idea why this is happening? I have tried searching for the "The following structures have either been created or altered" message but found nothing here and only a few things on Google but none of the Google responses were of any help.


This is a bug in phpMyAdmin and it has been fixed since version 4.0.1. See 14 item under (2013-05-14) section of the change log file. Upgrade to 4.0.1 or a version greater than that.
