I'm having some problems with the folder path I've been given

part of the path has a space in it.

Is there a way to handle this or should I have the user rename the folder?
SET @bcpCommand = @bcpCommand + ' \\fileserver\Shares\marketing\media data\dumpfile_' + replace(convert(varchar(10),getdate(),110),'-','') + '.csv -c -t"," -U webPortal -P webP!we%X'

You can have the user change the path or put the path inside double quotes, like this.

SET @bcpCommand = @bcpCommand + '" \\fileserver\Shares\marketing\media data\dumpfile_' + replace(convert(varchar(10),getdate(),110),'-','') + '.csv" -c -t"," -U webPortal -P webP!we%X'

Can you post first part of bcp

bcp command need double qoutes " " when a select statement is involed

ie
Set @cmd            = 'bcp " '+ @outputSQL +' " queryout "' + @CompletedFilePath +'" -T -c -t^,'
