export sql query results to xml

Hi Everyone,

I have the following sql query that I would like to store the results into an xml file on the local file system.  I am not a SQL programmer and the query was generated from another program.  If I run the query I am returned the proper results.  I just want to have the query put those results in an xml file called c:\slx\commission.xml

Any help would be appreciated.

have you tried using the For XML clause?
add to the end of your query, for XML AUTO and it will format it for you.

If you have a specific XML structure, you would need to define it.

You've not specified the version of ms sql you have, here is a link to MS layout of the for XML for the various MS SQL version starting with SQL 2005

Thanks for the help.  I have set the query to use "for xml path ('Sale'), root ('RM'), ELEMENTS XSINIL;" and have the output the way I want it.  Now I need to know how to make the output save to a file on the local file system.  I am using MS SQL Server 2008r2 with SSMS.

Are you looking for the file to be created automatically?
Is this a sql agent job?
James RizzitanoAuthor Commented:
Yes.  I would like to make the file to be replaced nightly.  I am hoping to run a crystal report from the xml data.
Why use an intermediary process when you can use crystal to directly query the databse?
James RizzitanoAuthor Commented:
The crystal report is being run by a separate web application and I did not want to have store authentication information in the report.
