How can I tell sql server to export field names of a table, along with it's data to a text file? I don't see a switch that does this?

In your Query put a select statement to select the filed names  followed by a UNION + the actual Query

Something like this

SELECT 'Address' UNION ALL SELECT Address FROM urTable
