Hi All, This is part of a PHP script that I am wanting to use to automate some daily data exports. The problem I am having, is adding a datestamp to my export file. The script itself works when executed in MySQL but not under PHP. Does anyone have any insight into how I can get this working? The error message I am currently getting is, and the part of php script I am running can be seen below. $sql1 = "SET @exportfile = CONCAT(SELECT 'FIELD_1' , 'FIELD_2' , .... UNION ALL SELECT * FROM mydatabasetable INTO OUTFILE 'E:/Data/exports/DailyExport/myexportfile" , DATE_FORMAT( NOW(), '%Y%m%d') , ".csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '''' LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n' );"; $sql2 = "PREPARE processing FROM @exportfile;"; $sql3 = "EXECUTE processing;"; $sql4 = "DROP PREPARE processing;"; Any help here is greatly appreciated.
