Hi

I have this command

mysql> SELECT * INTO OUTFILE
    -> "C:\outfile.txt"
    -> FIELDS TERMINATED BY '\t'
    -> LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
    -> FROM employee;
Query OK, 4 rows affected (0.00 sec)


which seems to have ran ok, but the output file c:\outfile.txt is actually in c:\program files\mysql\mysql server 5.0 \data

thanks
