It can be a case that datatype of field you are importing does not match to the fields in the destination table(data type mismatch ) or An identity column had been added as the first column in the table and BCP is trying to put a value into it.

Or if not above case then Below URL may help:

You can aslo use DTS package instad of BCP to import data.

Most likely your field-separator is wrong, or (in the worst case), some fields may contain the field-separator causing them to get split up...
Like  aneeshattingal asked, post like the first 5 lines AND the last 5 lines of c:\log_task.txt here... just to get an idea.
