If you want to do this using SQL Query Analyzer (or SQL Server Manager Studio),

you can just issue select with fields desired and execute the select

then

right-click on the data grid, select all, Save As
csv-file

the sql command  will be like:

sqlcmd -S myServer -d myDB -E -o "MyData.csv" -Q "select column1, column2 from dataTable" -W -w 999 -s","

Open in new window


  -W   remove trailing spaces from each individual field
  -s","   sets the column seperator to the comma (,)
  -w 999   sets the row width to 999 chars

If this is something you'll be doing on a regular basis and/or if the result-set is big I'd use bcp. (Use format-file or view if you're not copying all the columns or if you're joining tables)

Easy to code around it to zip & email the file etc
