Errors exporting data from sql server.

I am attempting to export data from an sql server database to a text file using the example shown in this link: http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1633.

I change the command to:
EXEC xp_cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT * FROM [CensusData].[dbo].[MainQuestionnaire$]" queryout "C:\bcptest.txt" -T -c -t,'

However I am getting the error:
Error =[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Invalid object name 'CensusData.dbo.MainQuestionnaire$'.  (see image)  

But when I run the query by itself i.e.:
SELECT * FROM [CensusData].[dbo].[MainQuestionnaire$ all rows are returned.

What changes do I need to make to allow the EXEC xp_cmdshell command to run without errors?

cmangus,

Your answer got me past that error and I am awarding you the full points.  But there is another error:
"Unable to open bcp host data file".

I shall post it in another question so that you or some other expert can have a go at it.

Thank you very much.
