You want that with or without column headers?

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Never mind. We'll do it both ways.

Since you're a tester and don't know much about SQL Server or SSMS, we'll do this as simply as possible.

Paste the following code into SSMS on same window that create the #Temp table, highlight the code, and then press the f5 key. Copy the output from the results and paste into notepad. Save the notepad file.

--===== Comment out from here through UNION ALL
-- if you don't want column headers.
SELECT 'Offer_ID' + '|'
+ 'Reserveration_Num' + '|'
+ 'Personal_ID' + '|'
+ 'Acct_Nbr_HE' + '|'
UNION ALL
SELECT CAST(Offer_ID) AS VARCHAR(8000)) + '|'
+ CAST(Reserveration_Num) AS VARCHAR(8000)) + '|'
+ CAST(Personal_ID) AS VARCHAR(8000)) + '|'
+ CAST(Acct_Nbr_HE) AS VARCHAR(8000)) + '|'
FROM temp
;
