SQL Server - exporting db data in flat file

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi Everyone, I have a SQL Server 2005 db, and a client is asking for the data in a flat-file format.

I gave them both a db backup and a scripted db file, but that's only the db structure.
I also tried the Data Export wizard, exporting to a txt file, but still, no db data.

Any idea how I can do this?
