If I remember correctly, with "select into outfile" the outfile has to be on the server.

Eve,

From the command line you can use `mysql`, command line tool that ships with
MySQL. You would want to use the

   SELECT ... INTO OUTFILE 'file.txt' FROM ...;

See the MySQL manual for more information on this:

 - http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/SELECT.html

You can use another MySQL client. Such as Toad for MySQL or MySQL query
browser - see URLs below.

Toad for MySQL
 - http://www.toadsoft.com/toadmysql/toad_mysql.htm

MySQL Query Browser:
 - http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/query-browser/index.html

Both of these tools will allow you to export a record set as a comma
delimited file.

Good luck!

Regards,
Adam
