One simple method to bring in multiple SQL files into a MySQL database is to use the "source" command in the MySQL command line interface.

  1. Open the command line interface for MySQL.
  2. Navigate to the directory containing the SQL files you want to import.
  3. Enter the command "use [database name];" to switch to the database you want to import the files into.
  4. Enter the command "source file1.sql;" to import the first SQL file. Replace "file1.sql" with the name of the SQL file you want to import.
  5. Repeat step 4 for each SQL file you want to import.

Note: Make sure that the SQL scripts are error-free and in the correct order, so that the dependencies between them are taken care of.
