BCP.exe will allow you to dump data to a text file.  Is that what you're talking about?

In MSSQL 7.0 beta you can use Data transformation services to import text file , exel file, mdb and so on into dtabase and export it into another location after with the same service
and save as txt too, in your question you failed to mention file format.
Also you can transfer files with Visual Basic.
