Send a Resultset to a Text File Instead of a Table

Suppose you've got a make-table query using an INTO clause in an MS ACCESS SQL SELECT statement. You can actually send the resultset to a text file instead of a table.

When you first run the query, a schema.ini file will be created in the application directory. Changing the settings on this file allows you to control your output.

Here's an example:

 line Format=CSVDelimited can be changed to Format=TabDelimited etc.
SELECT * INTO [Text;FMT=Delimited;HDR=Yes;DATABASE=C:\MyDirectory\;].MyTextOutput.txt
FROM MyTable;
