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 = "URI=C:\myfolder;";

using (SASDataSetsConnection connection = new SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)) {
  SASDataSetsCommand cmd = new SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT Id, Name INTO [csv://Account.txt] FROM [Account] WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks' ", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "URI=C:\myfolder;" 

Using connection As New SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT Id, Name INTO [csv://Account.txt] FROM [Account] WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks'", 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 = "URI=C:\myfolder;";

using (SASDataSetsConnection connection = new SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)) {
  SASDataSetsCommand cmd = new SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT * INTO [Account] IN [csv://filename=c:/Account.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [Account] WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks'", connection);
  int rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
} 

VB.NET

Dim connectionString As [String] = "URI=C:\myfolder;" 

Using connection As New SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New SASDataSetsCommand("SELECT * INTO [Account] IN [csv://filename=c:/Account.csv;delimiter=tab] FROM [Account] WHERE Industry = 'Floppy Disks'", connection)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
