This is not possible using bcp.  The simplest way I know to do this is to install sqsh (http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/ - it used to be sqsh.org but that appears to be gone) and do a query like "select * from table where date >= '2014/1/1'; -mbcp".

The other option that I know is to create a view and bcp out the view.

The last option I can think of is to bcp out the full table and then use an awk/perl script to essentially grep the rows you want (only works for char-format bcp and not binary format).  However,  I think both my suggestion for sqsh and troublesaga's view suggestion are better options (if you can do them).

sqsh is incredibly useful.  I use it all the time and dread whenever I'm on a system where I'm stuck with isql.

I second  troublesaga's suggestion. I guess creating a view would be easiest. You will use view name instead of table name in bcp command.
