isql output

jkavx asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I think I knew the answer once, but it's been a while since I've had to use isql very much.  When I use isql to run a  query that has a result set with nvarchar(max), I get results that seem to be strewn across a vast expanse of white space, even if I redirect to an output file.  Is there something that can be done to limit the output ot the actual column names, field values?
