Newbie needs help!

Hello List, I am not a programmer, but I need to come up with a fairly simple program - and I could use your help!

Essentially, I just need an *EXE that I can run on a scheduler. This EXE will need to connect to a datasource (I already have the OLEDB string) and run a stored procedure (that I have already built). Once the program recieves the data from the stored proc, I simply need to write the data to a text file in CSV format.

Can someone help me get started with some sample code? I have no idea where to begin.

Here is a Great Tutorial ( for reading and writing to databases.

This ( should help you get started on Writing to text files.

and if these don't supply the answers you need then the Search ( works extreamly well, as long as you remember to use " * " for search words less than 4 characters. :D

Once you find the information you need and make a go of it you will find that this forum is very helpful in answering specific questions, particularly for those of us just beginning.

Hope this Helps
