How can we export all the data from MySQL table into a text file?

MySQLMySQLi Database

It can be done with the help of SELECT … INTO OUTFILE statement. We are illustrating it with the help of the following example −

Example

Suppose we are having following data from table ‘Student_info’:

mysql> Select * from Student_info;
+------+---------+------------+------------+
| id   | Name    | Address    | Subject    |
+------+---------+------------+------------+
| 101  | YashPal | Amritsar   | History    |
| 105  | Gaurav  | Chandigarh | Literature |
| 125  | Raman   | Shimla     | Computers  |
| 130  | Ram     | Jhansi     | Computers  |
| 132  | Shyam   | Chandigarh | Economics  |
| 133  | Mohan   | Delhi      | Computers  |
+------+---------+------------+------------+
6 rows in set (0.07 sec)

Now, the following query can export all the data from ‘Student_info’ table into a file named ‘student.txt’:

mysql> Select * from student_info INTO OUTFILE 'C:/mysql/bin/mysql-files/student.txt';
Query OK, 6 rows affected (0.01 sec)

The above query will create a file named ‘Student.txt’ and export all the data from ‘Student_info’ table into it.
