I would like to have a stored procedure to product an output report to a text file.  Is this possible?

Table1

PN               MonthGenerated
---               ---------------------
12345         Apr
22345         Apr
11111        Mar
22222        Mar
11211       Jun


Output report

"Monthly Generated Report"

Month                  Counts
-------                  ---------
Mar                     2
Apr                    2
Jun                     1

You can use the OSQL utility to do that. It is a command like utility that can run against your SQL server, store it as a batch file and schedule it through windows scheduler.
Here is more info on the OSQL utility: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa213090(SQL.80).aspx
Hope this helps.
