I am using MySQL workbench 5.2.25 CE

I have backed up my Database in  a self contained file.

I want to import the database but do not want to restore it, How can I ensure that the database is created but under a different name. example db_development.

I want to leave the database that users are currently working on but need a copy of the database to test some sql statements.
