I have a bcp batch file that is creating an output file correctly...but it is in UCS- 2 Little Endian format format.

How can I do this in ANSI?

bcp "exec database.dbo.datOutDupont" queryout d:\webs\ftpDupont\premierData.dat -w -S SERVER\INSTANCE -T -E -t^|

you specified -w which is unicode indeed.
you might want to use -c instead?
