problem with mysql export to file in c#


i have a problem with mysql+c# in mysql export operation.

FolderBrowserDialog fol=new FolderBrowserDialog();
if (fol.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
   string path= fol.SelectedPath;
   string sql = "SELECT * INTO OUTFILE '" + path+ "\person.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '\"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' FROM tpers ";
   MySqlCommand daa = new MySqlCommand(sql, conn);

for example
path = “c:\export”
but when i execute this code it doesnt export person.csv to intended path.
it creates “c:export\person.csv” file and creates this file in mysql/data folder..
can u explain the problem, and how to fix it…


I solved this problem..

string path = fol.SelectedPath;
path = path.Replace("\\","/");

after this my program works correctly…
