I have data from the query like below  which is returning around 2 million records.

select col1, col2 from table1

Now how to export data to an excel?

Also if the table contains more than 30 million records, can we export the data to a flat file? as I think excel cannot hold more than 65000 records?

What version of Excel ?

also you can pull data straight into excel

30 million records in a flat file is a bad idea.... it would be huge and probably crash before you would ever be able to open it.
