Hi there,
is it possible to have a stored procedure to write the result of a query to an FTP site?

Lets said for instance select * from mytable where id =1

Than i have like 2 returned records and wrap those two records on a txt file and upload to an FTP site.
Is this possible and if it is can you point me to the right direction?
Thanks

What you can do is write a batch file (.BAT) and use the SqlCmd.exe to run the query and product a result and then use the FTP program to upload the file to the FTP site.
e.g.
SQLCMD -S servername -U user -P pwd -q "query string" -o result.csv
FTP -s:ftp_cmds.txt
