Remote SQL Azure Database BCP Connection Problem

Hi, I'm trying to use BCP with my SQL Azure database. The following bcp call to get a format file is resulting in as error:

bcp databasename.dbo.tablename format nul -x -f c:/localstoragepath/FormatFileName.xml -n -S myservername.database.windows.net -Umyusername -Pmypassword -T

The error returned is:
Server name cannot be determined. It must appear as the first segment of the server's dns name (servername.database.windows.net). Some libraries do not send the server name, in which case the server name must be included as part of the user name (username@servername). SQLState=37000, NativeError = 40531

Can anyone point out the problem with my bcp command parameters? Thanks!

have you tried

bcp databasename.dbo.tablename format nul -x -f c:/localstoragepath/FormatFileName.xml -n -S myservername.database.windows.net -Umyusername@myservername -Pmypassword


as the error suggests you may need to include the server name on the userid...

also i don't think you should also have the -T flag ... its not a trusted connection ?

anyway -U -P should be mutually exclusive with -T  i believe it would have been trying a trusted connect
rather than you userid and password....
