Export SQL Data To Comma Delimited Csv File

Oct 19, 2007


I was wondering if anyone might be able to say how I could export data captured via a view into a comma delimited csv file.

So far I have tried using BCP to access my view and export to a CSV file, but the CSV file isn't comma delimited. I tried finding examples but couldn't see what I should do to have a comma delimited file. (I'm getting a bit tired now, so I might be missing something!)

I have created a bat file containing the following code:

bcp "TestDB..GA_FSM_DCSF_Extract" out "C:GA_FSM_DCSF_Extract.csv" -fexport.fmt -e "C:error.log" -c -T -S srckvzg2j -r

Any help / pointers would be much appreciated.

Export To Comma Delimited File

Aug 4, 2007

I'm trying to upload a small Web application with a one table database. The hosting company, GoDaddy requires that I upload the database as a comma delimited file.
I created the database in Visual Web Developer Express but also have Visual Studio and SQL Server Management Studio Express.
I can't figure out how to export the database into a comma delimited file using any of these tools.
This should be simple like it is in Access but that doesn't seem to be the case. This is holding up deploying my Web Application.

Can anyone help me?

Export SQL Server To A Comma Delimited File

Aug 1, 2007

I'm trying to deploy my Web site to GoDaddy. They told me I have to export the SQL Server Express database to a comma delimited file and then upload that file. The export procedure is simple in Access but I don't see any way to do it in SQL Server or from Visual Web Developer or Visual Studio.
 Also, I can ask them, but I assume I have to export each table separately and also export the ASPNETDB as well.
Thanks for the help

Exporting Data To A Comma Delimited Text File, FORMAT Function

Jan 15, 2001

Hi. Im new to SQL and I need to export a SQL table as a comma delimited text file which is straight forward. However two of the fields are integers and I need these to be right justified with zero's.
In Access I would use something like format(columnname, "00000000") to get it to work, but SQL Server doesn't like this.
How can I do this?

SQL Server 2008 :: Getting Error In BCP When Importing Comma Delimited Data File

Sep 3, 2015

I am struggling on using bcp to import data. Here is my steps:

1. I created a Test database on my localhost
2. In the Test database, I created a Test table, the query is here for your convenience:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Test](
[id] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[network_group_name] [varchar](128) NULL,
[IP] [varchar](15) NULL,
[OS] [varchar](128) NULL,

[Code] ....

I then create the format file used in bcp:

bcp Test.dbo.Test format nul -c -t, -f C:RXieSQLTest.fmt –T

Here is the format file:

1 SQLCHAR 0 12 "," 1 id ""
2 SQLCHAR 0 128 "," 2 network_group_name SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
3 SQLCHAR 0 15 "," 3 IP SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

[Code] ...

The data file is called 20150902FullTest.rpt and the first couple lines (first line is the header and followed by two rows) are posted here:

Domestic,,Windows XP SP3,Adobe / Macromedia Flash Player,APSB14-17: Adobe Flash Player CVE-2014-0537 Vulnerability,4350,2015-09-01 09:55:07.720
Domestic,,Windows XP SP3,Adobe / Macromedia Flash Player,APSB14-17: Adobe Flash Player CVE-2014-0539 Vulnerability,4350,2015-09-01 09:55:07.720

With the format file and the data file, I use the following bcp command:

bcp Test.dbo.Test in C:RxieSQL20150902FullTest.rpt -f C:RxieSQLTest.fmt -T

I got the following error messages:

Starting copy...
SQLState = 22005, NativeError = 0
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Invalid character value for cast specification
SQLState = 22005, NativeError = 0
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Invalid character value for cast specification

[Code] ...

I do want to mention here is the rpt file contains three BOM characters EF BB BF at the beginning of the file.

Hi,On SQLServer 2000, I have a table with a following structure:MYTABLEcol1 char,col2 date,col3 numberMy Objective:------------Externally (from a command line), to select all columns and write theoutput into a file delimited by a comma.My method:---------1. Probably will use OSQL or BCP to do this.2. Use the following syntax:select RTRIM(col1) +','+ RTRIM(col2) +','+ RTRIM(col3)from MYTABLE;My 3 Problems:-------------1) If there is a NULL column, the result of concatenating any value withNULL, is NULL. How can I work around this? I still want to record thiscolumn as null. Something like say from the example above, if col2 isnull, would result to: APPLE,,52) The time format when querying the database is: 2003-06-24 15:10:20.However, on the file, the data becomes: 24 JUN 2003 3:10PM. How can Ipreserve the YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format? Notice that I also lost theSS.3) Which utility is better? BCP or OSQL?For OSQL, it has a "-s" flag which gives me the option of putting acolumn separator. But the result is:"APPLE ,14 JUN 2003 , 5"I don't need the extra space.While for BCP, there is no column separator flag.You will notice from my inquiry above that my background in SQLServer isnot very good.Thanks in Advance!!RegardsRicky*** Sent via Developersdex http://www.developersdex.com ***Don't just participate in USENET...get rewarded for it!

Importing A Comma Delimited File

Apr 12, 2006


I have a problem... When I insert data from a comma delimited
file using this mehod a flat file connection sorting, merge join and
inserting into the database I get "" around all the data!! The
quotes end up around the column names and everything! I had to go
in and manually remove the quotes in the text file to get some of my
data conversions to work. I know there is a better way. How
do I get SSIS to load the data without the quotes? This is an
example of the data in the file:

"1007","1","A","","Congratulations - No Health Violations Found","11/02/2005","1007"

When I remove the quotes I do not have any problems. How do I
do this without modifying the underlying data? Any ideas would be
greatly appreciated!!

Thank you for your help!

Error Using Bulk Insert On A Comma Delimited File

Mar 18, 2008

I am having a problem using the Bulk Insert task. I am getting the msg:
SSIS package "Package.dtsx" starting.
Error: 0xC002F304 at Bulk Insert Task, Bulk Insert Task: An error occurred with the following error message: "You do not have permission to use the bulk load statement.".
Task failed: Bulk Insert Task
SSIS package "Package.dtsx" finished: Success.

I have been granted ownership of the database. I also tried in one of my old databases that I just finished
developing and I got the same msg.

The file I am importing is comma delimited. I am importing it into a table that has 50 bytes allocation for each field (the max input field size is 40 bytes).

The connection is solid;
Format = “Specify?
RowDelimiter = {CR}{LF}
columnDelimiter = Comma {,}

No other options are set.

The data looks like:
"tstLName","tstFname","000 N Tst DR","IDAHO sp","ID","00000000",

Any ideas why I am getting this message?

Flat File Comma Delimited Ignoring Quotes

Dec 27, 2007

hi im using the import export wizard to import a file where my recoreds are comma delimited but when i HAVE to use a comma im using quotes to escape

"CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=aboneng,DC=local",user,Administrator,Built-in account for administering the computer/domain,"CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=aboneng,DC=local",4,20050421014154.0Z,20060518065932.0Z,

with this example

CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=aboneng,DC=local === should be the first column
user, ==== the second column
Administrator === third and so forth.

i thought it was a standard to use quotes when escaping your delimiter but sql is bringing in the records as comma delimited as normal is there anyway around this?

Design Question Regarding Comma Delimited Data

Feb 15, 2007


I'm trying to figure out if it's good design practice to have several pieces of data in a one column. I explain by example. Let's say you build a movie site. Each movie can belong to several categories. A movie can be Action, Adventure, Fantasy and Drama all at once. Assume a database table with all the movies and another table with all the categories. Now how would I associate one movie with several categories? Would it be OK if I add a Category field in the movie table and then add several categories in that, delimited by commas? Sort of like below:

movie_title                  | movie_rating |        category_name--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pirates of the Carribean |      PG-13        | Action,Adventure,FantasyEvil Dead                     |      Unrated      | Horrorand so on ...I can then query the database with a LIKE query if I want to select all movies of a certain category. Personally, I don't like this approach to much, but I can't think of another way to achieve this. Well, there is one other, but I like that one even less. I could create another table that links each movie to a category, but his way each movie with several categories would get a new row. Using the table above, Pirates would get three rows in that table. One with Action, one with Adventure and one with Fantasy. Get my drift? It all seems counter-intuitive. Thoughts? 
Thanks :o)

Export As Tab Delimited Text File

Dec 5, 2007


I am trying to export as a tab delimited text file. For that I have changed my config file as :

<Extension Name="TXT" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.CsvRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.CsvRendering">
<Name Language="en-US">TXT (Tab Delimited Text File)</Name>

I got this code from another one of the MSDN forms. When I run the report and try to export using this format, it still gives me a csv file instead of tab delimited file.

Can someone please help me fix this code so I can get tab delimited text files.

SELECT WHERE (any Value In Comma Delimited List) IN (comma Delimited List)

Jul 2, 2005

I want to allow visitors to filter a list of events to show only those belonging to categories selected from a checklist.

Here is an approach I am trying:

TABLE Events(EventID int, Categories varchar(200))

EventID Catetories
1           ‘6,8,9’
2           ‘2,3’

PROCEDURE ListFilteredEvents
   @FilterList varchar(200)    -- contains ‘3,5’
WHERE (any value in Categories) IN @FilterList



How can I select all records where any value in the Categories column
matches a value in @FilterList. In this example, record 2 would be
selected since it belongs to category 3, which is also in @FilterList.

I’ve looked at the table of numbers approach, which works when
selecting records where a column value is in the parameter list, but I
can’t see how to make this work when the column itself also contains a
comma delimited list.

Can someone suggest an approach?

Any examples would be greatly appreciated!

Good evening! I have a problem. I have a namelist coming from a distribution list of an active directory. When I converted it to csv file, the members reside in just one column and separated by a comma. I want the names to be separated in a row one by one. I tried it on excel and I used the transpose column but to no avail. My last resort is to import it on sql but the names on the column was cut and not complete. Do you have any idea how to do this. Your help is highly appreciated.

this is the sample file..

kelly.yap, lizzy.fox, yahoo, finance.dep, hope.miller, porly.john

the maximum names in a row is 566.

Help - How To Select From A Comma Delimited Field ?

Nov 2, 2003

Dear SQL,

Lets say I have a field: User_Names

and it can have more than one name
example: "Yovav,John,Shon"

How can I select all the records that has "Yovav" in them ?

I try some like this:
SELECT * FROM User_Table WHERE User_Names IN ('Yovav')

but it only works if the field User_Names only has "Yovav" in it with no extras...

is there some SQL function to tell if string is found in a field ?

Any hope 4 me ?

Quotes Around The Comma Delimited String

Oct 18, 2005

I am trying to build a dynamic where  statement for my sql stored prcoedure
  if len(@Office) > 0   select @strWhereClause = N'cvEh.chOfficeId in (select id from dbo.csfParseDeLimitedText( ' + @vchOffice  +  ',' + ''',''' + '))' + ' and ' + @strWhereClause
In this case users can enter comma delimited string in their search criteria. So if they enter we1, we2, we3 then my sql statement should look like
select @strWhereClause = cvEh.chOfficeId in (select id from dbo.csfParseDeLimitedText('we1', 'we2', 'we3'),',')
My csfParseDeLimitedText function looks like this
Create  FUNCTION [dbo].[csfParseDeLimitedText] (@p_text varchar(4000), @p_Delimeter char(1))RETURNS @results TABLE (id varchar(100))ASBEGIN declare @i1 varchar(200)declare @i2 varchar(200)declare @tempResults Table (id varchar(100))while len(@p_text) > 0 and charindex(@p_Delimeter, @p_text) <> 0beginselect @i1 = left(@p_text, charindex(@p_Delimeter, @p_text) - 1)insert @tempResults select @i1select @p_text = right(@p_text, len(@p_text) - charindex(@p_Delimeter,@p_text))endinsert @tempResults select @p_text
insert @resultsselect *from @tempResultsreturnEND
My problem is it does not put quotes around the comma delimited stringso I want to put 'we1' , 'we2'. These single quotes are not coming in the dynamic sql statement. How can I modify my query so that single quotes around each entry should show up.
Any help will be greatky appreciated.
