Hi trying to export data from SQl 2005 using the SSIS wizard, however the last column which contains a narrative wraps into the next line, how can I export the CSV without have the narrative column wrap into the next line?

Have you tried replacing the line returns in the field with something like this?

replace(replace(NarrativeColumn, char(13),' '),char(10),' ')

For SQL 2005 only you could do it directly to CSV or XLS from SQL query command like:

--SQL 2005 only
EXEC master..sp_makewebtask
      @outputfile = 'c:\testing.csv',
      @query = 'Select * from dbName.schemaName.tableName',
      @colheaders =1,
      @FixedFont=0,@lastupdated=0,@resultstitle='Testing details'
