Hi chaituu,

From the command line interface (CLI) you can use the EXPORT or DUMP command to copy the contents of a table or query to a file.

EXPORT TO filename OF DEL
  MODIFIED BY COLDEL,
  SELECT * FROM mytable


If you're going to use anything but the default delimiter you'll need to use the MODIFIED BY COLDEL clause (shown above).  Replace the comma with your delimiter (Tab, colon, hash, etc.)


Good Luck,
Kent
