i would really like to automate something like ... login to mysql cmd followed by creating a database following by creating tables... with one bat script

here is my try:

mysql -u root password password;

however it returned me this:

C:\Documents and Settings\lih>mysql -u root password root
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.45, for Win32 (ia32)
Copyright 2000-2008 MySQL AB, 2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc.

Usage: mysql [OPTIONS] [database]
  -?, --help          Display this help and exit.
  -I, --help          Synonym for -?
  --auto-rehash       Enable automatic rehashing. One doesn't need to use
                      'rehash' to get table and field completion, but startup
                      and reconnecting may take a longer time. Disable with
                      --disable-auto-rehash.
  -A, --no-auto-rehash
                      No automatic rehashing. One has to use 'rehash' to get
                      table and field completion. This gives a quicker start of
                      mysql and disables rehashing on reconnect.
  -B, --batch         Don't use history file. Disable interactive behavior.
                      (Enables --silent.)
  --character-sets-dir=name
                      Directory for character set files.
  --column-type-info  Display column type information.
  -c, --comments      Preserve comments. Send comments to the server. The
                      default is --skip-comments (discard comments), enable
                      with --comments.
  -C, --compress      Use compression in server/client protocol.
  -#, --debug[=#]     This is a non-debug version. Catch this and exit.
  --debug-check       Check memory and open file usage at exit.
  -T, --debug-info    Print some debug info at exit.
  -D, --database=name Database to use.
  --default-character-set=name
                      Set the default character set.
  --delimiter=name    Delimiter to be used.
  -e, --execute=name  Execute command and quit. (Disables --force and history
                      file.)
  -E, --vertical      Print the output of a query (rows) vertically.
  -f, --force         Continue even if we get an SQL error.
  -G, --named-commands
                      Enable named commands. Named commands mean this program's
                      internal commands; see mysql> help . When enabled, the
                      named commands can be used from any line of the query,
                      otherwise only from the first line, before an enter.
                      Disable with --disable-named-commands. This option is
                      disabled by default.
  -g, --no-named-commands
                      Named commands are disabled. Use \* form only, or use
                      named commands only in the beginning of a line ending
                      with a semicolon (;). Since version 10.9, the client now
                      starts with this option ENABLED by default. Disable with
                      '-G'. Long format commands still work from the first
                      line. WARNING: option deprecated; use
                      --disable-named-commands instead.

  --column-names      Write column names in results.
  -N, --skip-column-names
                      Don't write column names in results.
  -O, --set-variable=name
                      Change the value of a variable. Please note that this
                      option is deprecated; you can set variables directly with
                      --variable-name=value.
  --sigint-ignore     Ignore SIGINT (CTRL-C).
  -o, --one-database  Only update the default database. This is useful for
                      skipping updates to other database in the update log.
  -p, --password[=name]
                      Password to use when connecting to server. If password is

                      memory).

                      down the server if the output is suspended. Doesn't use
                      history file.
  -r, --raw           Write fields without conversion. Used with --batch.
  --reconnect         Reconnect if the connection is lost. Disable with
                      --disable-reconnect. This option is enabled by default.

It has been a while since I used the windows version but if I remember correctly it is the same syntax for both. It is odd but there is a space between -u USERNAME and no space between -pPASSWORD

On Linux I put all my sqlcode in one file (mycode.sql) and the redirect it in to mysql like this:

mysql -u root -ppassword < mycode.sql

Hope this helps.
