    The SQL script files loaded by the task having as id $taskId will be
  <Setting name="selectFiles" value="$taskId" />
  <Setting name="selectFiles" value="$taskId" />
  <!-- You can add as many selecteFiles as you want.-->
  <!-- The database engine type. Possible options: sqlserver|access|oracle|mysql|sqlite|postgresql|teradata|odbc-->
  <Setting name="type" value="sqlserver|access|oracle|mysql|sqlite|postgresql|teradata|odbc" />

Below a sample workflow using this task:

<Workflow xmlns="urn:wexflow-schema" id="67" name="Workflow_SqlToCsv" description="Workflow_SqlToCsv">
		<Setting name="launchType" value="trigger" />
		<Setting name="enabled" value="true" />
		<Task id="1" name="SqlToCsv" description="SQlite" enabled="true">
			<Setting name="type" value="sqlite" />
			<!-- -->
			<Setting name="connectionString" value="Data Source=C:\WexflowTesting\sqlite\HelloWorld.db;Version=3" />
			<Setting name="sql" value="select * from Data;" />
			<Setting name="separator" value=";" />
		<Task id="2" name="FilesMover" description="Moving SqlToXml files from temp folder" enabled="true">
			<Setting name="selectFiles" value="1" />
			<Setting name="destFolder" value="C:\WexflowTesting\SqlToCsv\" />
