The subject says it all...
I'm wondering if anyone can help me with an approach for getting caller id data into a mysql database. I'm thinking if I could somhow convert the CID data to XML I could FTP the XML data to my server on a schedule and run a script on my server to get the XML data into my db. But how can I extract CID data? Does anyone know of any tools..opensource or otherwise?

Okay, I found a free application called PhoneTray Free 1.26 which logs phone calls and creates a CSV file. I am using the MySQL database provided by my web host and so what I would like to do is create a database from the CSV file. Is it possible to import the CVS from a directory and create a table from it using PHP?
