In this article I will explain how to download and install Microsoft Northwind Sample database in MySql. Microsoft’s Northwind database is available for SQL Server and MS Access but it is not available for download for MySql.
Instead of spending time in converting the SQL Server database to MySql, I’ll be making use of a SQL Script to create the Northwind database in MySql.
Download the Northwind database Script for MySql
The script can be downloaded using the following link.
Note: In a case the above link does not work for you, you can download the Script file using the Download button present at the end of the article.
Installing the Script in MySql database using MySql Workbench
Once the Script file is downloaded, you need to open it using Notepad or any other Text File editor and copy its contents in MySql Workbench Query window and click Execute.
That’s all you need to do and the script will create a Northwind database in MySql.
