Hi Tiaanvanniekerk,

Unless you have/want to re write the package simply inport it into 2005 and schedule it via the agent

I tried but it keeps on crashing,thats why i thought of may looking for assistance to create a storedproc and schedule the stored proc to save the file to a specified path

I am currently busy with:

SELECT [IncidentID]
      ,[IncidentDisposition]
      ,[IncidentDuration]
      ,[IncidentDateTimeStamp]
      ,[GISCoordX]
      ,[GISCoordY]
      ,[LocationDescription]
      ,[IncidentStatus]
      ,[IncidentType]
      ,[IncidentStatusID]
      ,[IncidentImpact]
  FROM [NTCIPSERVERDB].[dbo].[incidentsview]

            ORDER BY [IncidentID]

            FOR XML auto, xmldata ,BINARY BASE64


Now only to put this in a create stored proc code and specify the path

Any ideas?

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_SANRAL_INCIDENTS
AS

SELECT [IncidentID]
      ,[IncidentDisposition]
      ,[IncidentDuration]
      ,[IncidentDateTimeStamp]
      ,[GISCoordX]
      ,[GISCoordY]
      ,[LocationDescription]
      ,[IncidentStatus]
      ,[IncidentType]
      ,[IncidentStatusID]
      ,[IncidentImpact]
  FROM [NTCIPSERVERDB].[dbo].[incidentsview]

            ORDER BY [IncidentID]

            FOR XML auto, xmldata ,BINARY BASE64

Tiaanvanniekerk,

if you are not going to use DTS or SSIs tho only (ugly) way i know of is this

exec xp_cmdshell 'osql -Q "your query" -O"Yourfile.txt"'
