I think this is relatively easy, but I have been unable to find what I'm looking for. Is there an example of creating a job that will export a table to a file location on a regular basis (weekly)? I'm using SQL Server 2008. Thanks for any help.

something like that

xp_cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT * FROM MyTable" queryout "C:\MyTable.txt" -T -c -t

To schedule export you can create a scheduled job on SQL Server side

so

step 1:

create a stored procedure with the following content:

DECLARE @sql varchar(8000)

SELECT @sql = 'bcp "select * from MyTable" queryout c:\MyTable.txt -c -t, -T -S <servername>' 

EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @sql

Open in new window


step 2:
create a scheduled job that runs this stored procedure
