Thanks Dhaval. Putting the join condition before INTO outfile doesn't seem
to work, either.
When I try to use the same outfile name 'test123.csv' I get Error Code:
1086 File 'test123.csv' already exists. But then when I try to find the
csv file on my computer, there is a folder with that name, but weird files
in it, none of which are a csv-- and certainly not in the location that I
thought it would be (the same directory that the .sql query is in).
Additionally, when I try to identify a different path, such as 'C:\\' etc,
I get an error. This error is: Error Code: 1. Can't create/write to file
I tried running the query outputting to a different named .csv file, but it
is still just "running..." and seems like it was like yesterday where after
10 minutes I will get the Error that the MySQL connection was lost.
Does anyone have an idea of what is going on?
