Hi All,

I am storing Microsoft Documents in MySQL tables.I am able to save document of size lesser than 5MB.However if the document size is more than 5MB, I get an error that "max_allowed_packet" size is lesser.

I had googled to find the answer and i found the following way to change the packet size

shell> mysql --max_allowed_packet=32M

I dont understand what this "shell>" is about.can anyone tell me where to type this command.Is it the windows command prompt or in the MySQL command prompt.If so how to type this command?.

Can someone help me over this issue please

Thanks and Regards
