Proper syntax of LOAD DATA INFILE
Posted by: Martin McGlensey

I want to load the contents of a tab delimited text file into a table.

LOAD DATA INFILE '/home/xxx/Desktop/parcel_numbers.txt' INTO TABLE tblparcel_numbers FIELDS TERMINATED BY '/t' LINES TERMINATED BY '/r/n'

This command generates error 29 and error 13 "File does not exist"

I'm running MySQL V 5.1 on UBUNTU 12.04. I'm logged in as a user. Using MySQL workbench to execute the LOAD DATA command. I'm connected to the database in which the target table is located. I have been able to add data and tables to the database so that is not the problem here. This syntax has worked on Windows. Where am I going wrong? Should the text file be in some other lication? BTW The LOCAL option is not supported in this version of MySQL.

All response are appreciated.
