I thought I read this some where but is it possible to routinely export data from SQL Server into a text file (ASCII) in a binary format? I have the pleasure of creating an interface to deliever data to a mainframe system using COBOL (a middleware service converts the file I'm sending).

You can hae SQL Jobs and DTS package or BulkCopy to do this trick.Is the source file name going to be the same althrough?

The source file name would be the same.

When you say BulkCopy, do you mean BCP?

Oh mY bad
I misread the question.You wanted to exprt data rather than import it to SQL.Hmm
well
You can use SQL Import Export wizard and create the destination as flat file source .Now create this as an SSIS package(DTS in 2000) and schedule it.

You can create a SSIS package that for example will export the data to a txt file, then export the file using ftp tp the mainframe and in the end receive a e-mail report.
You can do this just by developing a SSIS package.

Hope this helps.
