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 URL, Title INTO [csv://WebSearch.txt] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft'
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 URL, Title INTO [csv://WebSearch.txt;delimiter=tab] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft'

C#

String connectionString = "APIKey=abc123;";

using (BingConnection connection = new BingConnection(connectionString)) {
  BingCommand cmd = new BingCommand("SELECT URL, Title INTO [csv://WebSearch.txt] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft' ", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "APIKey=abc123;" 

Using connection As New BingConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New BingCommand("SELECT URL, Title INTO [csv://WebSearch.txt] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft'", 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 = "APIKey=abc123;";

using (BingConnection connection = new BingConnection(connectionString)) {
  BingCommand cmd = new BingCommand("SELECT * INTO [WebSearch] IN [csv://filename=c:/WebSearch.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft'", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "APIKey=abc123;" 

Using connection As New BingConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New BingCommand("SELECT * INTO [WebSearch] IN [csv://filename=c:/WebSearch.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [WebSearch] WHERE SearchTerms = 'Microsoft'", connection)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
