You want -n "Does not unload database data; reload.sql contains SQL statements to build the structure of the database only. If you want the reload.sql file to contain LOAD TABLE or INPUT statements, use -nl instead. "

Then create a new database, connect to it and run the reload.sql script.

BTW it's always worth saying which version of SQLA you are running.

Just to add:

The initial section of the "reload.sql" file contains a comment with an according CREATE DATABASE statement you can use to build the new database with appropriate settings for page size, collations and the like.
