I tried

C:\Users\luj>BCP poserv4..vw_posnos out c:\posnos.csv -c -T -t, -S<poserv4> from dos prompt
but i get back..
The syntax of the command is incorrect.

what could be wrong? -T is trusted (windows authentication> -t is to separate by comma
poserv4 is the server name.. i want the results of the view vw_posnos into csv format..

Try space after -S
ie. -S posserv4

you are not using the < > in the bcp command, are you?

first i was using <>.. i changed it but still fails..
C:\Users\luj>BCP poserv4..vw_posnos out c:\posnos.csv -c -t, -T -Sposerv4
Unknown argument 'ûSposerv4' on command line.

C:\Users\luj>BCP poserv4..vw_posnos out c:\posnos.csv -c -t, -T -S poserv4
Unknown argument 'ûS' on command line.
