Exporting cases

Is there a way to export a set of cases, or other data from with FogBUGZ, to a comma-delimited or Excel file?

My boss wants to have a different file and me to base my reports off that.  A pain in the butt, but not mine to reason why. . .

I think i have answered my own question... yes.  But i should contact my fogbogs administrator so he can do it, exporting from the database behind the scenes directly.  Correct?

If so, can you/anyone offer any tips?

Sure, just use whatever database export you like.. 

If using Access, open the FogBUGZ.mdb file in Access and when you export you can tell it whatever format you want (excel can also just import the data straight from the access file).

If SQL Server, use enterprise manager and choose Export (same thing with Excel here).

If MySQL, I'm sure there's a mysqldump command that can do that.
