Shell help

  • 14 years ago



    I’m trying to backup a mysql database. What I have to do to backup the database is go to the mysql command line, login and type this “mysqldump VideoDB > 'C:\VideoDBBkp.dmp'”


    That command calls mysqldump.exe that is located in here “C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin”


    I was trying the next command using the shell method in visual basic but it does nothing.


    Shell("C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqldump.exe VideoDB > 'C:\VideoDBBkp.dmp'")


    I need help. I didn’t even know of the existence of the shell method.Time [O]


    I don't even know if what I’m saying in here is right.
