You can create a SQL Job with the below code..

DECLARE  @Command NVARCHAR(4000)=''
	
SET @Command = 'bcp " ' + 'SELECT CreditReport FROM [PAWAN].[ABCInvestment].data.CreditReport WHERE 1 = 1 ' + '"' + ' queryout "E:\Pawan' +  '.csv' + '"' + ' -T -N'
 
PRINT @Command
 
EXEC xp_cmdshell   @Command

Open in new window

You can set up an SQL server agent job of type cmdexec to execute the bcp utility.
First try the bcp command by itself and remember to specify the -c argument for char instead of the default bin.


Wrap this command into a scheduled job
EXEC  master..xp_cmdshell 'SQLCMD -S server\SQLSERVERDEV2005 -E -Q "SELECT TOP 10 * FROM pubs.dbo.authors" -b -o c:\myoutput.txt', no_output

You can enable it, Right click on the SQL Server Agent and start the service.

Can't you do it in the opposite direction? In the target server (where you want the .csv file to be stored) schedule a task to export the data from Azure.
