What output format are you looking at? Plain text, xml or some comma or tab delimited list?

output to "somefile.dat".

for each customer no-lock:

export customer.


output close.

Or, put unformatted skip if you want complete control over the line layout.

A lot depends on what the other application is looking for. E.g., if the other application talks SQL, no need to even export it.
