HI Experts,

Accodring to this example: http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3663631/SQL-Server-2005-Integration-Services---Part-45---Bulk-Insert-Task-and-Format-Files.htm

to get the xml  format file you use this bcp cmd:

bcp AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f myTeam.XML -x -T

However, encountered this error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near '.'.

Same goes for :

bcp AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f myTeam.Fmt -T

Any ideas?

From where you are running the bcp command?
If you have not tried from command window then try it...

oh, I tried it in Management Studio.
When I ran the script above I cannot find the file on my puter. Even tried local drive and network folder, but no see fmt file.
Do you know where the file is?

TIA!

Here's what I've tried:

bcp [MyWorkstation\MyLocalDB].AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f \\MyWorkstation\c$\data\myTeam.Fmt -T

bcp [MyWorkstation\MyLocalDB].AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f C:\data\myTeam.Fmt -T

bcp AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f C:\data\myTeam.Fmt -T

bcp
[MyWorkstation\MyLocalDB].AdventureWorks.HumanResources.myTeam format nul -c -t , -f \\SomeServer\SomeFolder\myTeam.Fmt -T

And still get this err:

SQLState = 08001, NativeError = 17
Error = [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server does not ex
ist or access denied.
SQLState = 01000, NativeError = 2
Warning = [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]ConnectionOpen (Conn
ect()).

Can't even run this: osql -E -SYour_target_machine\Your_instance
