1) I am trying to execute the following in query analyzer. The file c:\converted.txt exists on the server. I am actually logged on the server but get error message "Cannot bulk load. The file "c:\converted.txt" does not exist."

BULK INSERT winpayuncashed FROM 'c:\converted.txt'
   WITH (
      DATAFILETYPE = 'char',
      ROWTERMINATOR = '\n'

2) How can I file path as parameter in the command.

Thanks a lot for your help.
