I need to bcp out a pipe delimimted .csv file.  The following is giving me a command line error. What's wrong with it?

declare @sql varchar(8000)
select @sql = 'bcp Test..Property1 out c:\Temp\property1.txt -c -t| -T -S' + @@servername
exec Test..xp_cmdshell @sql
Here's the output error:
'-T' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
