Printing So Much Error on Database Creation

I am copy/pasting from a .sql file into a mysql console to create tables and populate with data. I get an error message that my console is printing so much that it is interfering with other users. Is there a mysql tip for executing from command line w/out printing? Thinking this is only necessary for the insert commands. I tried googling as this may be more of a mysql / sql question, but came up empty so far. Thanks!

You can run the file through the mysl client program. There's an example of that in the "Restoring" section on this help page
