SQL Bulk Copy (bcp) Not Working

Hi All

In a Stored Procedure, I'm trying to export MS SQL table (with 1000 records) to a text file using 'bcp' command.

But, It does not export all the rows, the number of rows exported vary on each execution of the stored procedure and it's always less than 1000.

Please help me on this. This is my piece of code.

Declare @BCP_Str varchar(1000) 

Set @BCP_Str = 'bcp "VasMagnolia.dbo.FRBT_BCP_Out"
out "E:\DataFiles_1\FRBT.txt" -c -S"1223-VDMS-02A" -U"*****" -P"******" '

Exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell @BCP_Str,no_output

you could add -eErrorFile.txt to your cmd line and see what errors are logged.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
