I would like to create a stored procedure that runs a query and outputs the results to a text file and allows me to add extra delimeters and static field info. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
SQL Server has no native command for outputting query results to a file. You can use the extended stored procedure xp_cmdshell and call isql (command-line SQL) with your query and output the results to a file. Any delimiters would need to be part of the SELECT string:
DECLARE @isqlString varchar(255)SELECT @isqlString = 'isql -Q "SELECT DateCol FROM NorthwindTest.dbo.Test" -E -o C:Results.txt'EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @isqlString
