See the -T flag to mysqldump:

  $ mysqldump -T /path/to/dbdump mydb

This must be run on the machine where mysqld is running, and the
/path/to/dbdump must be writeable by the user running mysqld.

This will create both *.sql and *.txt files.  The *.txt files are
tab-delimited files.  You may need to change the '\N's to something M$
SQL server can understand.
