Automation - export query results as CSV - custom filename

#1

I'm trying to figure out the best way to automate a query and save it as a csv file. The issue is that it's only doing a timestamp on the file and I am running a few different queries. So it's hard to see what file is what.

So I ended up just using the export wizzard and putting the query in there and it runs fine. Before I was doing an execute script, it would run but not save the file.

Any insight on creating a csv file name that is recognizable would help. And any insight to the - best - way to automate a query and save the csv.

Thank you

never mind..... select to file does this. Not entirely clear until you start trying all the options...
