BCP load from text file.

When I attempt to load data from an ascii text file to
a predefined table I get the following error:
DB-LIBRARY error:
Unexpected EOF encountered in BCP data-file.
Could someone provide advice, specific instructions, or
point me to a good BCP reference guide from which I could
resolve this?

Most likely the problem is in your format file. Try manualy inserting a 'dummy' record into your table and then bcp it OUT without format file parameter. It will prompt you for format information for each field. Use the delimiters you are using in your text file and save the information in a new format file. You can then use this format file to bcp IN. Don't forget , that the last field delimiter should be "\r\n" if your records are on separate lines.
