Hello Tom,

Workbench is not like MS Access. There is no "database" built into it for you to work with data. It is a client tool that needs to talk to a database server if you want to do any kind of actual data processing.

If you only want to work with data that is on your workstation, install a MySQL Database Server on your workstation then connect your Workbench to that. If you want to keep working with the same data you worked with on the other computer, you will need to either connect this copy of Workbench to the same server you were using from that other copy of Workbench or make a backup of the data from the other server and restore that to a different server this copy of Workbench can connect to.
