Access Denied message when importing employee schema

I am using a macbook.  I've downloaded the employees.sql file but when I try to import the schema in to MySql workbench, I'm getting error message.

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Operation failed with exitcode 1

Can you help me resolve this.

Hi Tracy!
Thanks for reaching out.

Have you managed to successfully set up a connection first? We show how this can be done in this video:

Please ensure to have set up a connection first and then try to run the given file.

Note - please make sure to have completed all lectures and exercises until you get to the section about loading the employees.sql file. Thank you!

Hope this helps.
