There are a few ways to do this.  Either by using the import/export option or simply right clicking on the results table after running your query, and "save results as.."

You could use bcp.

For example

BCP "select * from table" queryout "C:\flatfile.csv" -T -S SERVERNAME -c -t,

Open in new window


You would run this from the command line.

OR another quick option from the SQL server Management Studio > right click on the Database the table exists> Click on Tasks > Click the Export Data and you will find the options in the NEXT > NEXT options...
