Hi,

Could anyone let me know how you would output the results of a SQL query to a .csv file.
Any help would be great,

Thanks

maybe something like this

sl := tstringlist.create;
try
  query1.open;
  while not query1.eof do
  begin
    for 1 := 0 to query1.fieldcount-1 do
    begin
      s := s + query1.fields[i].asstring;
      if i < query1.fieldcount-1 then
        s := s +','; //or other delimiter
    end;
    sl.add(s);
    query1.next;
  end;
  sl.savetofile('Filename');
finally
  sl.free;
end;

just from head, not tested

var
  f:textfile;
begin
  assignfile(f,'c:myf.txt');
  rewrite(f);
  query1.first;
  while not query1.eof do
  begin
    writeln(query1.fieldbyname('Myfield1').asstring+#9+
            inttostr(query1.fieldbyname('Myfield2).asinteger)+#9+formatdatetime('dd/mm/yyyy',query1.fieldbyname('myfield3').asdatetime))
    query1.next;
  end;
  closefile(f);
  messagedlg('Finish',mtinformation,[mnok],0);
end;

NOTE: if u want a character different to #9 (tab) replace #9 by ',' ok?

jamiguel,

its just not polite to answer a question,
when others already has given a solution
in previous comments

for the future, please,
do rather comment than answer a question,
so that the questioner can decide,
which comment helps best
