There is a table that I have to work with that has data which is sorted by Bill To Manufacture Name (BillToMfgName) and a Manufacture Name (MfgName).  Any time the BillToMfgName and/or MfgName changes I need to put the data in a new results section.  Is there any way to do this?  Or to write each of the results set to a new csv file?

Thanks, John

You can do both those things via SQL Server table TRIGGERS where you check if the INSERTED value for the specific column is different that the DELETED the either populate the results column(or another table/column) with data or pipe the result out to a csv file - I would not recommend the second option with the CSV file.

If by 'results section' you mean how the data is viewed, then this should really be handled by whatever reporting app you're using, and not by T-SQL or in the data.
