Using a Parameter in Load Data Infile Command (Instead of direct filename)
Posted by: Dhaval Sheth

I was wondering if we can have a parameter passed to the load data infile command rather than direct file name

Something like:

load data infile @input_file_name into table tab_name
fields terminated by '|'
lines terminated by '\n'
ignore 1 lines
(@dummy1, @dummy2)
set col1 = trim(@dummy1),
col2 = trim(@dummy2); show warnings;

and @input_file_name = 'c:/test/file1.txt'

I have tried following things but with no luck:

set @input_file_name = 'c:/test/file1.txt';
load data infile @input_file_name into table tab_name....

2.set @input_file_name = 'file1.txt';
select @input_file_name;
load data infile concat('c:/test/',@input_app_file_name) into table....

What I want is my file1.txt or maybe entire path 'c:/test/file1.txt' should be given as parameter to load data infile.

Please let me know other possibilities.
