As Douglas said, "source" is not an SQL statement.

Remember, MySQL is a client/server RDBMS. The client (your R program)
and the server can be on different machines. So when the server receives
the following statement "source ~/MySQLFiles/DateTable.sql", how could it
find the file "~/MySQLFiles/DateTable.sql"?
