We are using the bcp utility (via APIs) to export data from a SQL tablein a fixed format text file. BCP is inserting spaces for a field ifthe field contains a NULL. This is fine with us except at the end ofthe line, there are no spaces for that field just the end-of-rowterminator prematurely, so it looks like that field is not present andmesses up another piece of software we pump the text file into downstream.Example -- The last row illustrates the problem.123-49-890 Mary Smith Raleigh NC 999-88-123 Henry Ax Boston MA 456-99-123 Sue Kite WA 789-88-126 Andy Yates Philadelphia We have thought about using a SQL query to convert the NULL dataexplicitly to spaces, but were wondering is there a switch or somethingin our format file to get around this.Thanks.
What's the best way to export data from SQL Server to XML format. I've taken over a VB application written to carry out this task but it seems more complicated than it needs to be. Is it possible to just miss out VB and use say a DTS program instead??
I have been given a schema(XSD) file and as far as I'm aware any xml has to be formatted according to this schema.
I am using 'SQL Server 2005 Reporting Service' in my project. I am using sub-reports in many cases. Whenever I export such reports containing sub-reports to 'Excel' format which is the major client requirement in our project, the exported excel file shows 'Subreports within table/matrix cells are ignored.'
Can anybody tell me the solution for this? If not possible in reporting service then is there any other way to get data in excel format?
Hi,I am trying to use BULK INSERT with format file. All of our data hasfew bytes of header in the data file which I would like to skip beforedoing BULK INSERT.Is it possible to write format file to skip these few bytes ofheader before doing BULK INSERT? For example, I have a 1 GB data filewith 1000 byte header. Except for first 1000 bytes, rest of the data isgood for BULK INSERT.Thanks in advance. Sorry if it is really a dumb question as I am newto BULK INSERT and practicing still.Bob
I am using BCP to output a table to a file. Is there a swich to say that you wish to output in chunks. My output file is 1gb, I wish to output in 100mb chunks. Unfortunately I do not know the structure of the data, otherwise I would have used select statement to limit the size of the output file.
Rookie qustion here quys, Using SQL Sever 2005 Express and Visual Web Devoloper Express. I'm trying to get data from my local SQL sever database to my shared hosting database. SImple enough but... 1.) GoDaddy does not allow remote connections to the DB server 2.) With GoDaddy you can't just upload an .MDF file to your remote directory and script a connection string. You have to reference the DB server. Can't upload DB file to DB server. As a work around, I've seen several .sql files that have all the T-SQL that will create a database and tables then insert the data. I've google'd extensively and searched several forums with no luck as to how to export my local data to file. I could then copy and paste into an online utility GoDaddys has to insert the data. Is there a relatively easy way to export table data to a .sql file??? When I try using SQL Server Management Studio Express and "Scipt Table As> Insert To> File", It just gives me something like the following... INSERT INTO [pubs].[dbo].[authors] ([au_id] ,[au_lname] ,[au_fname] ,[phone] ,[address] ,[city] ,[state] ,[zip] ,[contract]) VALUES (<au_id, id,> ,<au_lname, varchar(40),> ,<au_fname, varchar(20),> ,<phone, char(12),> ,<address, varchar(40),> ,<city, varchar(20),> ,<state, char(2),> ,<zip, char(5),> ,<contract, bit,>) Plenty of data in this table, no data in script ??? Can SQL Server Management Studio Express do what I wanting to do? If not, any suggestions? Know of a better hosing company?

Hi-I have a sql 2005 server (New to me) that I need to get a report out of of type .inputIt needs to be in the format: HeaderRowreportTitile + rowcount()+ DateFixedWidthcol1 (spaces pad this field to 25) FixedWidthCol2FixedWidthcol3..... FixedWidthcol1 (spaces pad this field to 25) FixedWidthCol2FixedWidthcol3..... The columns in the flatfile HAVETO run into eachother, with NO delimiters.If i try and export it as a fixedWidth file, the columns DON'T line up. If I try as a delimited file, I can't do it w/o having a delimiter character in between.I'm creating an SSIS file (New to me) to do this, is this my best shot of getting a flat text file that I can then ftp to another server? thanksDan
Hi, I need to export data from SQL server 2000 database into text file uisng ç Delimited. Because my destination database will be teradata. Could you let me know if you have any method for this. Thanks
I need to export data from a table to a text file, where the data in the table is deleted after written to the file. It is simple using DTS, but I want to do the export in "chunks" of data, committing the delete say after every 1000 rows.
My thought was a stored procedure would be easy enough to do this (done these in Oracle many times), but I don't know the quickest way to export a row of data from a stored procedure to a text file. Isn't using a command-line shell too slow? What are my options?
Hello, I'm beginner in SQL and I would like to do a simple thing : Extract data from different table to a text file. I would like an automatic schedule job to extract these data and also I need that the result are "append" in this text file. Could you help me and give me the process to follow. Thanks in Advance

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:
I have not worked with NTEXT data before. I have a situation where I need to export a SQL Server 2000 table of data that has NTEXT columns in it. The plan is to archive the data to CD, and delete the data from the table once it has been archived.
I have tried exporting the data to a text file and specified a Ragged Right format in the Flat File connection manager. Do I need to somehow concatenate the data from the table in order to export it to this kind of file?
Is it possible to have two different formats for the header and the data in a flat file connection?
An example text file would look like this:
where the header is delimited and the data is ragged right.
It looks like you should be able to accomplish this from the Flat File Connection Manager Editor interface, but perhaps having different delimiter dropdown boxes for the header and columns can only be used if you are using the Delimited format?
I'm trying to export data from one of the table in my SQL 7.0 database into text file. Can someone tell me how can i do this using SQL Query instead of using BCP (command line) ?? Thank you in advance.
I have a table with text data with more than 8192 character in it. When I tried to select or into a file I could only see the first 8192 after setting 'Max character = 8192' properties. Please tell me how to select the entire data.

I am trying to export a table with ~ 10 Million rows to a flat file and it is taking for ever with SQL2005 export functionality. I have tried creating an SSIS package with a flat-file destination and the results are the same. In each case it does the operation in chunks of about 9900+ rows, and each chunk takes ~1-2 minutes which sounds unreasonable.
I tried bcp, and it fails after a few thousand rows. I tried moving the data to SQL2000 first then to flat file from SQL2K, but the move from SQL2005->SQL2000 was going at the same rate as above.
So, the bottleneck seems to be data going out of SQL2005 no matter what the destination is. I'm wondering if there is some setting that Iam missing that would make this run in a reasonable amount of time?
