Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In your SELECT statement add the FOR XML AUTO command to the end of the statement.

ALTER PROCEDURE YourProcedureName
AS
SELECT *
FROM Table
FOR XML AUTO
GO

You can then use SSIS, sqlcmd (osql if SQL 2000) or BCP to export the data to a file.
