MySQL Workbench Limit

with 7 comments

Working with MySQL Workbench, I was always curious why you couldn’t run a script with a sourcing command, like source or \. command. It raises a 1064 error code, like the one shown in the illustration.

It turned out that there’s a pending feature request to add the ability to run a sourcing command like the following:

SOURCE c:\DATA\some_script.sql


\. c:\DATA\some_script.sql

I added my business reason to the bug. Let’s hope the product managers add it quickly.
