SQL Conversion - 11-08-2006 , 08:32 AM
I'm not even a novice on SQL, so this may be out of my league, but I need to
find out how to convert SQL Tables to Flat files. I imagine I will need a
converter of some sort, right? The scenario is... a subcontractor sent files
to us in SQL Tables unlike the last year when they were sent in a Flat file
format. How can we get this into a flat file format without having to incur
more cost with contractor?

First, let the contractor know that the form of the data is unacceptable and
that he/she needs to 're-send' it in an acceptable format. Most 'reputable'
contractors will correct that without charge.
How do you know that the data is in SQL Tables?
Do you have a file that must be loaded into a SQL Server?
Do you have a SQL Server?
How can you look at the tables and know that they are SQL tables?
