Thanks everyone for your help. I finally figured out how to access
phpMyAdmin and then figured out how to "import" the data file properly.
I then encountered lots of errors trying to export it but ultimately
figured out a workaround. All seems to be fine now with a 13MB file,
but next I've been given a 250MB file to open then export!
In any case, it ended up being easier to just work within MySQL and
phpMyAdmin for this purpose, but I'll try to use Base to connect over
the weekend just to learn it.
Anyway, thanks again, especially to Alex and Jay.

Thanks yet again, Alex. A couple of things. First I don't have
access to the server from which the file originated. So I've set up
both MySQL/Server and XAMP on my Windows machine hoping to get one to
work for me. I've used PHPMyAdmin before so I thought that would be
best, but I can't get it to start. Unfortunately, I can't get
Workbench to work either, in part b/c I don't understand it. I'm
trying to load the database there (actually, working on the "World"
sample database first), but can't seem to figure that out. Do I
simply "load" the database, import it, reverse engineer it to create a
schema, create a new schema or database and import into it, etc.
etc.? Create a server connection? But don't I have to create the
connection first? When I try that I get a "failed to connect" 10061
error. As you can see, it's a bit opaque to me. BTW, I tried your
command at the command prompt but get a response about the command not
being interpretable or something like that. But I just read that I
maybe need to start the server and get to a mysql prompt???
