Well, my problem is i need to export from a script (currently bash-script in 
Linux) so im looking for the options to give with "mysql -e".
What u wrote in ur mail, i found too. But how do i give the "FIELDS TERMINATED 
BY" option in the command line of a script.

Example for import (working fine):
./mysqlimport --local --fields-terminated-by=';' 
--columns=record_type,...[...] dbname /PATH/file --password=xxx

Now the export (not working)
./mysql FIELDS TEMINATED BY ';' --skip-column-names -e "select 
ek_satzart,[...] from table" dbname > /PATH/file --password=xxxx

See, me wants to add options like "Fields terminated by" or other stuff to the 
command-line-export and i cannot find an explanation of Synatx here. In ur 
example u just export from within the db which is explained fine in the 
dokumentation but not what i need....

Hope i made the problem more clear now.
