BCP export to Text file skips rows

Please look at the BCP statement below.  It does export data to a text file, but it skips some of the rows.  I know BCP is skipping rows because I compared the BCP output with the output from a .NET program using a DataReader where I exported one row at a time.  I would like to use BCP because it is faster.

Thanks for any ideas
ALTER Procedure [dbo].[BCP_to_Text]
(  
@table varchar(255),  
@FileName varchar(255)  
)  
as  
If exists(Select * from information_Schema.tables where table_name=@table)
    Begin
        Declare @str varchar(1000)  
        set @str='Exec Master..xp_Cmdshell ''bcp "Select * from '+db_name()+'..'+@table+'" queryout "'+@FileName+'" -T -c'''  
        Exec(@str)  
    end
else
    Select 'The table '+@table+' does not exist in the database'

If you run bcp Select * from table queryout fileName -T -c
 manually from the command prompt do you get the same results and does it have as many records as running Select * from table in query analyser ?
