It's difficult to help you since what you've done is tell us that
what you tried didn't work, but you didn't tell us what you tried.
What commands did you execute?  What do the first few lines of the
script say.

From the error you describe, it sounds like you tried to run this
	mysql wind <tabellen.sql

but that tabellen.sql itself contains a mysql line near the top.
That suggests it may be an executable shell script, not just a
file to be fed to mysql directly.
