Attempting to import data to Mysql using mysqlimport
Running MySql version 5.6.17 on a ML350 G5 server. The operating system is Small Business Server 2008
Please understand I am learning Mysql . I am not an expert.
I am trying to import a text file using mysqlimport utility.
The command is below:
mysqlimport --user=root –password=dbxxx --fields-terminated-by=”,” --lines-terminated-by=”\n” pivot D:\Invest-Import-Data\tblpivottxt.txt
When I put the above command into a batch file mysql displays the error:
“Error 1045 Access denied for user 'root @ localhost' (using password NO)
So I created a batch file which would change directory to the path where mysql exists . The path is:
c:\program files\Mysql\Mysql server 5.6\bin
Then I manually typed the mysqlimport command above and the data successfully imported
Q1.) I have attached the batch file and the txt file and the table structure. What changes would you make to this batch file so I don't have to manually type the mysqlimport command?
Q2.) What must I do so the password does not have to be entered as part of the mysqlimport command?
Please give detailed answers. I am not a mysql expert.
Useful links are always appreciated.
