Importing a DB of products

I have a multiple databases of manufacturer products.

I’m in the automotive industry so the product numbers are based off of vehicle year,make,model,engine brake down.

I need some direction.

I’ve been trying to import a database and it gave me an error about the sku number.
I probably don’t have the field mapping set up correctly to relate the sku number to part number but I don’t know how to set this up.

I dont know how to setup the database or use the magento backend in order to relate the sku number to the part#.

If someone can direct me to some reads, or even just give me helpful hints i’ll be greatful.
I’m brand new to magento so it’s a little tricky for me.

I appreciate it, thanks.
