SQL 2005 TO XML FILE USING BCP WITH NO CR/LF

Hi,

I have the following SQL script to create an XML file.  It works fine except that it puts a carriage return at the end of the file.  The XML import program (which I have no control over) that picks up the file, does not like that carriage return and errors out.  Somehow I need to either eliminate all carriage returns in the file or just eliminate that single carriage return at the end of the file.  Any ideas how I can make my current script do this and/or a better way to do it?  

 
DECLARE
 @wh_id varchar(2),
 @order_number varchar(12),
 @FileName varchar(100),
 @bcpCommand varchar(2000)
SET @order_number = '79746-00'
SET @wh_id = 'DL'     
SET @FileName = '\\DC-p61\DC_share\' + @wh_id + '_' + @order_number + '_XML.xml'
SET @bcpCommand = 'bcp "SELECT XML_data from ZDATA.Costing.dbo.XML_OUTPUT order by XML_sequence" queryout "'
SET @bcpCommand = @bcpCommand + @FileName + '" -U sa -P password -c'

delete ZDATA.Costing.dbo.XML_OUTPUT where XML_type in ('D','S')

Insert into ZDATA.Costing.dbo.XML_OUTPUT
SELECT '<DomesticExport>' +[DomesticExport]+ '</DomesticExport><RailTruck>' +[RailTruck]+ '</RailTruck><TruckLicense>' +
ISNULL([TruckLicense],'') + '</TruckLicense><InOutState>' + [InOutState] + '</InOutState>', 'S', 5

FROM [ZMS-DB].AAD.dbo.t_coc_ship_main
where wh_id = @wh_id and order_number = @order_number

You should be able to use -r switch = row terminator - just check BCP details at

Already tried that.  There is no way to specifiy a NULL or 'No row terminator'.

If the Xml is larger than 2K, you probably cannot use BCP and will have to find some other tool.
