If this is a one-time thing and you want a csv, you can just use query analyzer.  Set the query results to be in a grid, do your select, right click the upper left box in the grid and select "save as"

No, this gona to be set up in DTS Execut SQL task to run automatically when the scheduel due.
I just found a code from this site as following, but it gave me message as below.
/**** BCP*****/
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell 'bcp ""SELECT  *  FROM Largeorder (500) "" queryout ""c:\data\export.csv"" -U uname -P password -c -t,'

/**** out put****/
Copy direction must be either 'in', 'out' or 'format'.
usage: bcp {dbtable | query} {in | out | queryout | format} datafile
  [-m maxerrors]            [-f formatfile]          [-e errfile]
  [-F firstrow]             [-L lastrow]             [-b batchsize]
  [-n native type]          [-c character type]      [-w wide character type]
  [-N keep non-text native] [-V file format version] [-q quoted identifier]
  [-C code page specifier]  [-t field terminator]    [-r row terminator]
  [-i inputfile]            [-o outfile]             [-a packetsize]
  [-S server name]          [-U username]            [-P password]
  [-T trusted connection]   [-v version]             [-R regional enable]
  [-k keep null values]     [-E keep identity values]
  [-h "load hints"]
NULL

In DTS you have an option to choose destination text file and useTransform data task between connection and text file.
