SQL 2008 R2; Have a query copy to Excel

Is there a way to have the query run then copy to Excel on the local drive?

I am familiar with Visual Fox Pro doing this and was wondering if possible in SQL Server 2008 R2.

We are converting to use SQL Server now....

Should be possible through the OPENDATASOURCE() function, have a look here for a similar Q: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/SQL_Syntax/Q_26228670.html

Please change the Result window to File and specify the file name. So, when you execute the Query result will go directly to file.
