Automating DB management

I don't know much about MySQL but I'm a tech guy so I'm trying to help a friend out.

He has a DB that he updates daily via CSV imports, right now it's mostly a manual effort. The CSV looks like the example below just 100,000s of rows of data.

1,TN,A 2.76
2,AL,C 3.14

I need to split that Class column into 2 values


I got the code worked out to split the column
SELECT left(CLASS, locate(' ', CLASS)) as classLetter,
RIGHT(CLASS, LENGTH(Class) - locate(' ', CLASS)) as classNumber,

What I'm not sure of is how we can make this somewhat automated. The CSV is updated and downloaded daily. It's a terrible process but he has no effect on changing it in the short term so we're trying to turn lemons into lemonade here. :)

I have searched through this forum and haven't come across anything that seemed to make sense to me.

Any thought to help a guy out would be greatly appreciated.
