You might want to explain in a bit more detail what you are trying to do, and what steps you have already attempted

You can use the [FOR XML][1] clause to retrieve results as XML.

Try using this to get the data in the format you need, and then think about putting this out to a file

i've done that.. the thing is i want to make a file like 'floorinv.xml', using this query 'select pkitemid,rtrim(itemdesc) as ItemDesc,itemprice,rtrim(researved3c2) as UnitNo,researvedn4 as FloorArea, Status from vitemfloor where fkitemtype='FloorInv' for xml RAW ('FLOORINV'), ROOT ('XMLRoot'),ELEMENTS, XMLSCHEMA;', how can i dump it to make a file like floorinv.xml in C:\temp or d:\temp

OK if this is a one-off, then in SSMS go to Query -> Results To -> Results to File, and when you execute you will be prompted for the file name. If this is to be a regular task, then either look at a SSIS package to export the results to a file, or a job that sends output to a file.

Another alternative id to use 'bcp out'.

There are lots of ways depending on your circumstances.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
