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):

C#

String connectionString = "APIKey=keymz3adb53RqsU;BaseId=appxxN2fe34r3rjdG7;TableNames=TableA,TableB,TableC;ViewNames=TableA.ViewA,TableA.ViewB,..,TableX.ViewY;";

using (AirtableConnection connection = new AirtableConnection(connectionString)) {
  AirtableCommand cmd = new AirtableCommand("SELECT Id, Column1 INTO [csv://SampleTable_1.txt] FROM [SampleTable_1] WHERE Column2 = 'Bob' ", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "APIKey=keymz3adb53RqsU;BaseId=appxxN2fe34r3rjdG7;TableNames=TableA,TableB,TableC;ViewNames=TableA.ViewA,TableA.ViewB,..,TableX.ViewY;" 

Using connection As New AirtableConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New AirtableCommand("SELECT Id, Column1 INTO [csv://SampleTable_1.txt] FROM [SampleTable_1] WHERE Column2 = 'Bob'", 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=keymz3adb53RqsU;BaseId=appxxN2fe34r3rjdG7;TableNames=TableA,TableB,TableC;ViewNames=TableA.ViewA,TableA.ViewB,..,TableX.ViewY;";

using (AirtableConnection connection = new AirtableConnection(connectionString)) {
  AirtableCommand cmd = new AirtableCommand("SELECT * INTO [SampleTable_1] IN [csv://filename=c:/SampleTable_1.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [SampleTable_1] WHERE Column2 = 'Bob'", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "APIKey=keymz3adb53RqsU;BaseId=appxxN2fe34r3rjdG7;TableNames=TableA,TableB,TableC;ViewNames=TableA.ViewA,TableA.ViewB,..,TableX.ViewY;" 

Using connection As New AirtableConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New AirtableCommand("SELECT * INTO [SampleTable_1] IN [csv://filename=c:/SampleTable_1.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [SampleTable_1] WHERE Column2 = 'Bob'", connection)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
