mysqldump with mysql query browser

I need to dump data of specifc tables in a database so I can insert/resore it to a DIFFERENT database (different DB  name too)

I can't seem to figure out how to do this.  (And for some reson I CAN'T access the mysql via a command prompt.)

Need a sample query... Thanks.

To dump 1 or several databases

mysqldump --user=XXXXXXXX --password=XXXXXXX --databases DB_NAME1 DB_NAME2 DB_NAME3 > /PATH/TO/DUMPFILE.SQL

Where in the query too would I do that? in a Script Tab or a Query Tab?

Login to your server using Putty by ssh or telnet and run this query on command shell directly...

Try this for a specific table

mysqldump -c -u username -ppassword databasename tablename > /tmp/databasename.tablename.sql

(Unless you give me a way to restore my command prompt - ie get some sort of error and then the dos prompt close, and I can't read what it exactly says.)
you have to see where your MySQL is installed then go to mysql Follder/bin...You should see mysqldumo there...Just go there and run this commad

I can't get a prompt to stay open!  SO I MUST do this via the MySQL Query Browser that comes with the Windows install.

phpmyadmin is a great tool to do what you are looking for
You could try the free trial of Navicat (

After setting up both database connections, right-click on the source database and click 'Data Transfer'. You could then specify the target server and database and Navicat will transfer all of your tables across automatically.

This actually will do what I need - grabbed the "lite" version and used the XML import / export feature.  Nice product for anyone who is reading this in the future.
