I regularly use MySQL, however am completely unfamiliar with MSSQL and the differences are killing me.
I have a task scheduled hourly to dump data from an Oracle database to a CSV file, which I then import into MySQL, I need now to do the same thing from a MSSQL 2005 database. All I need as results from the script are the comma separated values of the result of the query.
I need help converting the following Oracle script to be run from Debian 5.0 linux via iSQL on the command line, to be able to pull CSV data from MSSQL 2005.
