Hi,

what's the best way to export SQL Server Data and use it in an application?

I've got to create an exe which runs on SQL data without being connected to the original database. But there has to be only an export function so there's no transaction for import after reconnecting to the database.
After having done the export the application has to run on the localized data.
And what's the best data format? XML? Best practises welcome.
