I am having problems importing text files into MySQL. I have created a table called GSMaster201011 and I have a file on a network drive, called OUPcust_11_06_2010.TXT. This is the command I'm using: and I get this error: From what I can find out, this error means that path is incorrect or MySQL cant access the file. I've checked the path and it is correct, so I checked the permissions and this is what I get when I check the files flags: The only problem is I dont know that much about linux and I dont know what I'm looking at with the above query. I am logged into locally & MySQL as root. Please let me know if you need more information.
