This article describes how to use an IDMSBCF batch job to export data to a flat file suitable for importing into another format such as Excel.
The standard output in a SELECT used in an IDMSBCF batch job can't be used as an export file for two reasons:
1. There are column headings, and
2. The "wrap around" effect of the column output due to the record length restriction.
