Let's say I have a table with this info in SQL Server 2008 (2 columns):
0000001, this is the text for doc 1
0000002, this is the text for doc 2
What I need to do, is create text files for each row named by the DocNumber column.
So something like select [Text] from table and then send that to [DocNumber].txt, then loop through the rows. I'm guessing I'll need to use xp_cmdshell.
I need to end up with 000001.txt and 000002.txt.
Any suggestions or resources that might have something similar that I can play around with? It just needs to be a SQL script.

If it has to be a SQL Script, you will need to utilize some OLE OBjects to extract the data.
Anyway, probably the easiest wayt to export the data would be using a SSIS package. You can use the Export Column data transformation to store a value of particular field into a file. It can handle

Pavel is completely right. But I came over this: http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2693/export-images-from-a-sql-server-table-to-a-folder-with-ssis/ yesterday which I think will be helpful. That particular example is about exporting image files, but it would take only small tweaks to make it work with text files.
