you will find a search field to the left. Enter 'dump' in it
you will get a result of your search
click on the first link of the result
locate the line "You can read this back into MySQL with..."
The MySQL Manual is a great source of information for problems of this kind. You will get it much quicker and more detailled, if you search there first, before you post here. good luck Hartmut

Thanks Hartmut Still having problems. I can't figure out where I have to put the dump. Do I place it in the bin directory ? I tried a few of the commands and couldn't seem to progress. At the sql prompt what command should I use ? The batch file is called backup.sql Thanks for your help in advance
