How would I store the MySQL code below into a variable?

    mysql --host=localhost --user=root --password=admin table <<EOF 2 >> logfile.log
    insert into video (title, description, url_video, upload_date) 
    values('testing','default_description','$filename', '$date_field');
    EOF

Open in new window


I want the script to log MySQL errors to the logfile and need to result of the query to be stored as a variable so it can be used a few times later in the script.
