I am having a problem when trying to create a database using mysql command. The code i am using is;using (MySqlConnection con = connect_db())
MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand("CREATE DATABASE @name;", con);
catch (Exception exc)
When i try to run this code i always get an error saying that i have an error in mysql syntax near "fancydb"...but when I put the name in the command like: "CREATE DATABASE facnydb;" it works. Can anyone explain to me why is the error only happening when i try and use parameters?
