Running WindowsXP, Great Plains Enterprise 7.0 asks for BCP.exe to be installed in the local computer.  How do I install this program, where do I find it?

I believe it is a bulk copy utility. I am not sure what at what part is isinstalled as it has been yeards for me and Great Plains (thankfully). It should be in the bin directory under your SQL version install.  If it is make sure that bcp.exe is part of your path. to see if it is part iof your path shell out to dos and Type Path

Thanks for the answers, I will try them in a bit.  Great Plains says that BCP.exe must be installed in the user's computer.  We tried copying BCP.exe directly to the great plains folder but then we get a "component DLL" missing or something along those lines.  I will let you know in a couple of minutes.  Thanks.

@sliiconman:Thanks, that link show me the solution.  Although BCP.exe and BCP.rll needed to be put in the root directory of GP rather than the sql/util directory.  Regardless, GP is working great now.  Thanks!  

@and235100: thanks for the link as well, I'll keep it handy.
