vertica add tag

Currently I am using Vertica on Ubuntu 14.04 from the terminal as dbadmin. I am using 'admintools' to connect a database and then executing queries like Create Table, Select, Insert in the terminal.

Is there any way I can write the commands in any external text file and execute all the query at once? Like for Oracle, We can create a SQL file in Notepad++ and then run all the queries in the database.

Not only can you use scripts, but it's a good practice for any operation that you might need to repeat.

From the vsql prompt, use [the \i command]( to run a script:

    vsql> \i create_tables.sql

From outside the vsql prompt, you can invoke vsql with [-f filename](
