Using the following script to output the contents of an entire table, comma delimited to a txt file.

Was able to get rid of the count using the -n.  Unable to get rid of the column headings which widen the output due to underlines.  How do I get rid of the headings (and heading underlines).  Tried severlaa variations of the "-h" parameter."

THANKS!

Script:
isql -S FFMSSQL -U sa -P  -d filesurf -Q "select * from i_export" -o c:\iexport.txt -n -h -s ","

Output
i_c        ,i_m        ,i_a            ,i_p            
-----------,-----------,---------------,---------------
         34,          1,RE             ,152            
         93,        126,RE             ,156            
        222,          2,TE             ,152            
        528,          3,CL             ,152            
       1155,          6,COMLIT         ,36            
       1231,        203,E              ,155            
       1366,          2,TE             ,152            
       1464,        112,RE             ,152

-h-1 suppresses headers.
