Exporting database to CSV files

Pardon me for posting this in slightly the wrong place. I don't see any option for SQL in general or SQL 2000.

I need to export a SQL2000 data to CSV files. One for each table. Everything I am seeing says to use DTS. Following the examples I have found, I seem to be missing a step. The screen shots show a step where you can choose what tables are exported. I'm not getting that option. I get a drop down of all the tables, so I can only pick one.

If there is a way to make this work, or someone can point out another way to export all the table to individual CSVs, that would be great.

Thanks!

Use bcp you can do it..

declare @sql varchar(8000)
select @sql = 'bcp master..sysobjects out
                c:\bcp\sysobjects.txt -c -t, -T -S'+ @@servername
exec master..xp_cmdshell @sql

its is a simple application to get the csv file by entering the table name.

This link will give you an idea to get csv file by a sql query.

The link on the simple-talk website is almost exactly what I need. In fact I ran it and got all my data exported. Then I realized that BCP doesn't export the columns names. I have looked up how to include them, but again the samples are only written for one table, not the entire database.

Here's the code I am using to generate another page of code that I run to produce the export. How would I modify this to include column names?

select 'exec master..xp_cmdshell'
             + ' '''
             + 'bcp'
             + ' ' + TABLE_CATALOG + '.' + TABLE_SCHEMA + '.' + TABLE_NAME
             + ' out'
             + ' e:\export\'
             + TABLE_CATALOG + '.' + TABLE_SCHEMA + '.' + TABLE_NAME + '.bcp'
             + ' -t, -T -S' + @@servername
             + ''''
from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
where TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'

I finally hit on the right combination of search words and found a great little utility called SQLtoTXT (http://www.withdata.com/sqltotxt.html) that did the trick. The trial version will only export the first 1000 records from each table, but I just did manual export for those.

Thanks everyone for your help and time.
