I need to extract a record from DEV to a text file and then import the record into QA.  I do not have permission to run xp_cmdshell and I do not have permission to link the database to the QA server.

If I copy and past the fields I lose the special characters in them so I need to export and then import.

Any ideas?

  select * from mytable

in Management Studio, then right-click on the results and choose Save Results As ...
