How to write MySQL query in text file and run in Linux?

I would like to call a .sql file from a .sh file in linux. The .sql file will contain queries to MySQL database.

I am able to call the .sql file by running .sh file in linux, but the sql query is not working. Below is my syntax. The select statement is throwing below error.

Code:
./sample.sql: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token `from'

sample.sh file:

Code:
echo "this is shellscript calling sql"
./sample.sql

sample.sql file:

Code:
set pages 999
set lines 999
set colsep |
select * from sampletable;

expected result should be similar to a normal select * from xxx statement

To call the mysql process from the shell, you need to invoke the mysql process.

Your script as SQL statements but does not invoke mysql.

For example, your script should have something like this:

Code:
mysql -u myuserid -p  mydatabase < mysqlfile.sql

(just as an example)
