    Can a sql statement be used to generate a comma delimited file in Oracle?

    This is pretty urgent.

    Thanks

    You can do something like this:

    > desc t1
    Name Null? Type
    ------------------------------- -------- ----
    A VARCHAR2(10)
    B VARCHAR2(10)
    C VARCHAR2(10)

    > select a || ',' || b || ',' || c from t1;

    A||','||B||','||C
    --------------------------------
    a1,a2,a3
    b1,b2,b3
    c1,c2,c3

    You could spool the output to a file.

    Or you can "SET COLSEP ," in SQL*Plus and just SELECT * FROM ...
