SELECT INTO Statements

You can use the SELECT INTO statement to export formatted data to a file.

Data Export with an SQL Query

The following query exports data into a file formatted in comma-separated values (CSV):

SELECT Id, GivenName INTO [csv://Customers.txt] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian'
You can specify other formats in the file URI. The possible delimiters are tab, semicolon, and comma with the default being a comma. The following example exports tab-separated values:
SELECT Id, GivenName INTO [csv://Customers.txt;delimiter=tab] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian'

C#

String connectionString = "";

using (QuickBooksOnlineConnection connection = new QuickBooksOnlineConnection(connectionString)) {
  QuickBooksOnlineCommand cmd = new QuickBooksOnlineCommand("SELECT Id, GivenName INTO [csv://Customers.txt] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian' ", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "" 

Using connection As New QuickBooksOnlineConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New QuickBooksOnlineCommand("SELECT Id, GivenName INTO [csv://Customers.txt] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian'", connection)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
You can specify other file formats in the URI. The following example exports tab-separated values:

C#

String connectionString = "";

using (QuickBooksOnlineConnection connection = new QuickBooksOnlineConnection(connectionString)) {
  QuickBooksOnlineCommand cmd = new QuickBooksOnlineCommand("SELECT * INTO [Customers] IN [csv://filename=c:/Customers.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian'", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "" 

Using connection As New QuickBooksOnlineConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New QuickBooksOnlineCommand("SELECT * INTO [Customers] IN [csv://filename=c:/Customers.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [Customers] WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian'", connection)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
