This script is designed for SQL Server 7.0 Because of the limited access to xp_cmdshell (only members of the sysadmin role have access to xp_cmdshell using the SQL Server service account, all non-sysadmins use the local account SQLAgentCmdExec which has no access to domain resources), the average end user cannot export data to a UNC path. This procedure gives the end user that capability without having to have access to xp_cmdshell or being a member of the sysadmin role. This procedure exports (BCPs) data from a table using the OLE automation capabilities of SQL Server. To run this stored procedure you will need to create the two stored procedures listed in the BOL under the topic "OLE Automation Return Codes and Error Information".
