MS SQL Server write query result to text file

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi, Experts

suppose I have 3 tables in MS SQL Server (2008 R2). Is it possible to write query result of multiple tables to a single text file.

the pseudo code is like below:

open a text file
select top 1 * from table_A
select top 2 * from table_B
select top 3 * from table_C
close text file

* tables are all in different schema.

thanks in advance
