Carl ,

Use a mySQL database and connect over the Native Connector

then google for the book "DataBase Programming" writen by Roberto Benitez for Openoffice but also for LibreOffice
a lot of code can been found on the Book-website

SQL files are normally SQL scripts which are backups or scripts that create a database on a SQL server. If you need something in that script, you would need to setup a MySQL server, execute the SQL file on that server, and then get the data out that you need. I know that is a mouthful, and the process varies based on your operating system (Linux, Windows, Mac, etc).

After you do the above, you can connect with base, but you could also get your data out using the MySQL Workbench tool or even a command-line if you are using Linux. I can help you if somebody else doesn't help first, but I need to know what OS you are running to be able to help you further.

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,
