Wanted: no column headers in output file

I'm using MSSQL 2000 osql to run scripts against databases for monitoring purpose.
The output of the script is saved into an output file.

I would llike to get rid of the column headers in the output file.
So instead of

Column A  Column B
-----------   -----------
a                1

I would like to get
a       1

What parameter of option can i use either with osql or within the t-sql script?

You could do this:

@echo off

setlocal

set oldFile=output.txt
set newFile=newFile.txt

del "%newFile%" 2>NUL

for /f "tokens=* skip=2" %%a in ('type "%oldFile%"') do (echo %%a)>>"%newFile%"

echo Output in "%newFile%"

Good Luck,
Steve

Looks like you can use the -h parameter to do this task:

osql -h-1 -S . -d northwind -E -Q "select top 5 * from orders"

I tried the -h options, but it still gave me headers in the outputfile.

The -h work for me as did my manual batch file processing. Maked sure not specify the parameter exactly:

-h-1

No spaces in between characters for this parameter.

Thanks Steve for the solution.
It must be -h-1 instead of -h.
