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 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.
