I am running SQL Server Management Studio Express 2005.  I am trying to bulk copy the contents of a csv file into a table.  I've opened the command winow and typed in the following:

bcp "Public_data.dbo" in "c:\customer_service_reportcard.csv" -c -q -U"xxxxxx" -P"xxxxxxx"

I get the following error:
SQLState = 08001. NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client] Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2]
SQLState = HYT00. NativeError = 0
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client] Login timeout expired
SQLState = 08001. NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client] An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.

SQLServer Management Studio Express is installed on my local PC for development.  Does bcp work with Express?

Any help is appreciated.
