I can not get the following SQL code to work to load data properly from a txt file created in Windows Notepad. I have included the create statements for the database schema and table.

create database shr2;
use shr2;
CREATE TABLE `shr2` (
  `shrcode` char(3) COLLATE latin1_general_cs NOT NULL,
  `shrfirm` varchar(20) COLLATE latin1_general_cs DEFAULT NULL,
  `shrprice` decimal(6,2) DEFAULT NULL,
  `shrqty` decimal(8,0) DEFAULT NULL,
  `shrdiv` decimal(5,2) DEFAULT NULL,
  `shrpe` decimal(2,0) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`shrcode`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COLLATE=latin1_general_cs;
drop database shr2;

LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE
'/MySQL/shhr.txt'   INTO TABLE shr2
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
ENCLOSED BY '''
LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n';    /*this is where I keep getting the error*/

The text file does have to be formatted as a standard CSV file for that to work.  Can you post a few lines of 'shhr.txt'?
