I have a project for which I need to extract data that is in a .sql file (presumably a SQL database). I've done very little with SQL so I need some guidance on doing this. One route would be to open it with Base or Access (I now finally have access to MSAccess on a Windows machine but would prefer Base), but I don't understand the basics of doing this.

So...can someone point me to a tutorial on how to do this, step-by-step and from the very beginning? For instance, do I need to set up a SQL server and if so, how? (I've tried installing XAMP with MySQL on the Windows machine but haven't gotten it to connect to the file yet.) Can I access a .sql file directly or via other methods? I'd like to eventually learn how to use SQL but I'm also on a pretty limited timeframe on accessing this data.

Or does someone want to outline the steps here for me to research on my own?

Thanks very much,
