Hi,

i need to export data from a view to a PSV file.
I'm traing to do this t-sql:

exec master..xp_cmdshell 'bcp "select * from [database]..test1" queryout "c:\Import.psv" -T -S "server\instancename"'

I receive an error:

Error = [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Cannot resolve collation conflict for replace operation.


I want to export this data to a unicode PSV so that people from Oracle can import it.
Can someone help please?


thank you

Use this format...

declare @sql varchar(8000)
declare @path varchar(8000)
set @path ='d:\import.psv'
select @sql = 'bcp "set fmtonly off select * from db_name.DBO.table_name" queryout '+@path+' -c -t^ -T -S' + @@servername
exec master..xp_cmdshell @sql

this will give u the Psv format with tab delimiter..

Many Thanks!

Booksonline and google are great resources, but if you need an example, here's both an out and in in:

--using a super special 4 char row delimiter to be sure it doesn't exist in the data
--flags explanation:
-- -c = charcater data
-- -t"[||]" = field terminator
-- -r"[~~]" = row terminator
-- -T' = Trusted connection
--out
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT EMAILTEMPLATESID, EMAILBODY FROM Sandbox.dbo.EMAILTEMPLATES ORDER BY EMAILTEMPLATESID" queryout c:\Data\bcpExample.txt -c -t"[||]" -r"[~~]" -T'
--in
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_cmdshell 'bcp Sandbox.dbo.EMAILTEMPLATES in c:\Data\bcpExample.txt -c -t"[||]" -r"[~~]" -T'
--in via bulk insert
BULK INSERT EMAILTEMPLATES FROM 'c:\Data\bcpExample.txt'
WITH (
DATAFILETYPE = 'char',
FIELDTERMINATOR = '[||]',
ROWTERMINATOR = '[~~]',
FIRSTROW = 1
)

This is a related question, hoping someone on this thread can answer it.

I've had a working bcp process for months that creates a CSV file on a network drive. Here's the command:


'bcp "exec [dbname].[dbo].ExtractData" queryout ' + @destFolder + @fileName + ' -t \, -T -c'

When @destFolder = "\\[server_name]\UploadFiles" it works

If I change @destFolder to: "\\[server_name]\9 Auto Generated Upload Files\" with spaces in the folder name, it doesn't work.

I can work around this, but does anyone know of a way to force bcp to accept spaces in the destination folder?

Thanks in advance,

Sigerson

it's the usual command line thing: files or paths that contain spaces must be wrapped with double quotes

your code modified:note the dbl quotes that make up the path+file, and also for the t delimiter

'bcp "exec [dbname].[dbo].ExtractData" queryout "' + @destFolder + @fileName + '" -t "\", -T -c'

@Lowell,

Thanks for the quick answer. Yes, a rookie mistake. (pause for hanging head in shame)

Is there a word for having to learn so many fine points that one begins to forget the basics? Ermm

Thanks again,

Heh... we can coin a new phrase, Lowell. "NPL" for "No Personal Life". I won't hazard the pronunciation of the acronym, though. :-P
