or ideally it would be even better to have it generate from sql server stored procedure, so I can automatically email to the supplier.

If the table contains a field of type XML then you can just use BCP to export the XML field directly.

If you want to transform flat record(s) into XML then export it, you will probably need FOR XML to transform it, and BCP to export it.

This help reference (in SQL 20056 help) has a brief example of how to convert flat records into XML

ms-help://MS.SQLCC.v9/MS.SQLSVR.v9.en/udb9/html/ea58e90c-0a2a-4c8f-a7d6-d61618c2d11c.htm

You should be able to send the result of the SELECT to a text file.

this is my select statement and it is showing data_agent at the first.  is there a way for it to only say name??

SELECT agent_name as name, agent_number as number
FROM data_agent
FOR XML AUTO

<data_agent name="Agent1" number="BEB001" />
<data_agent name="Agent2" number="BOR001" />
<data_agent name="Agent3" number="BOW001" />

I'm trying to use explicit and this is the error I'm getting:  How can you tell if a tag is open or closed?

Parent tag ID 1 is not among the open tags. FOR XML EXPLICIT requires parent tags to be opened first. Check the ordering of the result set.

You don't need to create the file .Just write    FOR XML AUTO, ELEMENTS  after copletion of your select query.
