I want to create a SQL dump that I can use to manually import the selected records to another database.

How can this query be modified to create SQL text that could be used for the dump?
select * from elqBooks WHERE `isbn` like '9780813343310'

goto "view" menu and select view as text instead of view as grid.

You'll get the output as text...

This is a MySQL question.  I use MySQL from a command line.  There is no menu view.

Can I do this without manually defining the columns, and can the output be SQL instead of CSV?

Can you explain what you mean by SQL?

select * from elqBooks WHERE `isbn` like '9780813343310'
INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/elqbooks.txt'

This will likely be a tab separated data (tsv) data format.
Do you need it to have | as separator (fields terminated by '|')

                 Hi!

If you want to extract particular data from a table into a file which has the data surrounded by INSERT statement then you
use the mysqldump program with the where option
See the manual :)
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqldump.html#option_mysqldump_where

So this command for you would be something like this
mysqldump -t -u [username] -p test elqBooks --where="isbn` like '9780813343310'"
see more examples here

Hope this helps.
