How to force an import/query to run without complaining?

Hi guys, im new - just signed up after looking online for a few hours regarding this issue. So I'm coming from Sequel pro and there is an option when running CREATE/ALTER/INSERT queries to simply RUN ALL - which I assume is just a forced method.

I'm trying to do the same thing in Workbench - except there is no option in the GUI to force an update and if for example im creating a table that already exists - I will simply receive; Error 1050 'table xxx already exists'. Naturally - nothing is updated - especially if i had new data in my query.

My assumption here is that - if the import/query was forced - I would not receive this error and it would simply overwrite whatever was in that table.

How can I automate this process in Workbench without resorting to the command line? My company runs a lot of insert/Create queries on a daily basis and we simply need a way to overwrite everything without it complaining.

Thanks - any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
