export a table generated via SQL to a csv file

I am using the Bob Swift SQL and I want the user to have the option to be able to export the data from the table to a csv file.  I have tried the CSV Table Export Macro add-on but I randomly get an error message from it.  What other options do I have.

Hi team,

I usually export the contents of a query into a CSV directly in the query execution like the example noted in this forum:

SELECT order_id,product_name,qty
FROM orders
INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/orders.csv'
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
ENCLOSED BY '"'
LINES TERMINATED BY '\n';

I believe that since you want a user to do this activity, you would not like him to access the database itself, correct?

In this case, if a macro cannot provide this functionality, then it might not be possible. I'll leave this question open so others can participate and give their thoughts as well.

Cheers,

Rodrigo
