Convert NSF database to CSV format

We would like to extract some data off of our Notes database to a CSV format so we can export it into SQL database. Our Notes databases do not have rich text fields, can we write an agent to do this? If we can can you please give a starting point how we could do that. We would like to test what can SQL databases do compared to our Notes databases. Thanks

The nsf that I'm talking about here is Notes Storage Format from Lotus Notes

What you should do is create a view with the fields/columns you want to export, and then just do a file - export and choose csv as the format

I hope this helps !
