Will try to use some guess powers and says that what you need is exporting a database table to a .csv file.
If I guessed then in MSSQL Management Studio, right-click on the database, go to tasks and Export data... and follow the wizard (the source will be you SQL Server instance and database and the target your .csv file).

Also a guess: when you mean with *.sql to generate a SQL batch containing your data as INSERT statements, then you should take a look at SSMS Toolpack.

Hi Jason Laskey,

You can do this by using the Import/Export Wizard. (Right Click database -> Tasks -> Import/Export Wizard)

OR

For greater control you can use SSIS.
