Generate A Text File From SQL Server

Feb 23, 2006


I need to generate a text file from SQL Server. The task automatically runs daily.

The format of the text file use "/" to separate the field and the row. At the end of the file, it adds number of char  and uses "". The number of char includes the data parts and excludes a few word of "the number of char".

For example,
The underline fonts mean the first row record. The Bold fonts mean the second row record. The Italic fonts mean the third row record. The red fonts mean the number of char and the end of file.


I am no idea about this problem. Please give me some suggestions. Thanks a lot


For your information

I use SQL Server 2000 in Windows 2000 Server environments

May 16, 2008


I'm looking for a good way to rewrite my T-SQL code with 'bcp' to SSIS package, any help would be greatly appreciated?

I have table1 contain account numbers and output-filename for each account,

I need to join table2 and table3 to get data for each account in table1, and then export as a txt file.

Here is my code using bcp (bulk copy)

DECLARE @RowCnt int,
@TotalRows int,
@AccountNumber char(11),
@sql varchar(8000),
@date char(10),
@ArchPath varchar(500)

SET @RowCnt = 1
SET @date = CONVERT(CHAR(10),GETDATE(),110)
SET @ArchPath = '\D$EDATAWorkFoldersSendSendData'
SELECT @TotalRows = count(*) FROM table1
--select @ArchPath

WHILE (@RowCnt <= @TotalRows)
SELECT @AccountNumber = AccountNumber, @output_filename FROM table1 WHERE Identity_Number = @RowCnt
--PRINT @AccountNumber --test
SELECT @sql = N'bcp "SELECT h.HeaderText, d.RECORD FROM table2 d INNER JOIN table3 h ON d.HeaderID = h.HeaderID WHERE d.ccountNumber = '''
+ @AccountNumber+'''" queryout "'+@ArchPath+ @output_filename + '.txt" -T -c'
--PRINT @sql
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @sql
SELECT @RowCnt = @RowCnt + 1

SQL 2012 :: How To Get Name And Timestamp Of File From A Directory

Mar 18, 2015

I want to write a stored procedure or a simple T-SQL snippet that takes a parameter "Directory Path" and gives me the name and datetimestamp associated with each of the files within that directory. I can not use xp_cmdshell since it is not allowed. CLR integration is not enabled on the server either.

Is there any other way at all to achieve this directly from SQL Server using T-SQL?

Retrieving And Storing File Timestamp

Feb 20, 2006

I have a package that processes a flat file, which is generated by a separate system each weekday around 3:30AM. I would like my package to store the timestamp of the input file and compare it to the timestamp of the next day's file. If they are the same, then the package can exit without reprocessing a particular file again.

So, my first question is whether a package variable can be updated so that its value will persist from one run to the next?

Second, what is the syntax to retrieve the file's timestamp, either directly from the file connection manager or within a script task?

Oct 24, 2007

ok...i give up.....
can this be done? (sql server 2000)
all i want to do is have my stored procedure output some data to a file and i want the filename to include a time stamp.

Integration Services :: Formatting Timestamp And Adding To A File Name

// TODO: Add your code here

string time = System.DateTime.Now.GetDateTimeFormats('G').ToString();
string pathD = @"C:UsersuserDesktop estFileD";
string pathR = @"C:UsersuserDesktop estFileR";


Normally (I usually program in JAVA), I would print out the variables to see if there is an issue but I haven't figured out how to do that in SSIS yet.I have to set the Connection string for the Flat File conection using the Expressions tab instead of putting the variable in the connection string tab.Now it works but the file that is spitting out is "testFileDSystem.String[]"

Generate A Strong Name Key File

May 22, 2006

I am a Newbie to programming and databases and would like to create a simple program for doing full text searching on a SQL database.

I have downloaded and installed Visual Basic 2005 Express, Web Developer 2005 Express, and SQL Server 2005 Express. I have watched several hours of video tutorials and done numerous tutorials. I feel I am making progress and having a lot of fun. My machine is running XP home edition.

I have found the following resource that looks like a good place for me to start with creating a full text search program:

SQL Server 2005 Books Online
Item Finder Sample

However I am stuck at the beginning with trying to generate a strong name key file.? I dont know how to open a command prompt? (I did confess to being a Newbie!!). I searched the database for this forum and found a relevant thread stating that SQLCMD is the command-line utility for SQL Server and is included with SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.? I found the SQLCMD program on my computer but when I opened it, it does appear to provide the options listed below in the tutorial (i.e., click start,? Point to all programs,? etc.).

Initially here is what I need based on the first section of the tutorial:

Building the Sample

If you have not already created a strong name key file, generate the key file using the following instructions.

To generate a strong name key file

Open a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 command prompt. ClickStart, point toAll Programs, point toMicrosoft .NET Framework SDK 2.0, and then clickSDK Command Prompt.

-- or --

Open a Microsoft .NET Framework command prompt. ClickStart, point toAll Programs, point toMicrosoft .NET Framework SDK 2.0, and then clickSDK Command Prompt.

Use the change directory command (CD) to change the current directory of the command prompt window to the folder where the samples are installed.
To determine the folder where samples are located, click theStartbutton, point toAll Programs, point toMicrosoft SQL Server 2005, point toDocumentation and Tutorials, and then clickSamples Directory. If the default installation location was used, the samples are located in <system_drive>:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server90Samples.

At the command prompt, run the following command to generate the key file:
sn -k SampleKey.snk

For more information about the strong-name key pair, see "Security Briefs: Strong Names and Security in the .NET Framework" in the .NET Development Center on MSDN.

How do I complete this initial step of generating a strong name key file for the tutorial? I guess I am missing something simple and once I get past this I will be able to complete the tutorial. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

SSRS: Generate Report Without RDL File

Jan 23, 2007

Hi all the good people here,

Can I generate a report without having RDL file physically at the server?

According to any "Generic Report Builder" logic, the report builder must stores the properties of Report in one form (RDL/XML) or the other (in database) and at the time of generating the "Report Output", builder must be reading those properties, assigning those to any class object's (say objRPT) properties/members and calling the method to generate the report in perticular file format.

I need a way where I can assign these values stored in the database (i.e. meta data of report is stored in database) to the objRPT directly. Can I do that.

I need this because I want to see whether I can switch from "Active Reports for .Net" to "SSRS" or not. I store all the meta data of the report into the database (including its control information, parameter mapping etc.) I have used Active Report's Events as well to show/hide controls/sections conditionally.

So in short as the metadata is in predefined-database, i don't want to bother with the RDL files. Can I do that?

Please help me with this.
