Is the name _gpg_filesnames or _gpg_filesnames_test ? You are using _gpg_filesnames_test

I am using _gpg_filenames_test
I just noticed the "s" in filesnames. I changed that to filenames and get the following error...
Msg 4861, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
Cannot bulk load because the file "C:\Documents and Settings\sritsick\My Documents\jsr\Erie_Master\ErieTest\filelist_test.txt" could not be opened. Operating system error code 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).

This path does exist.

Hmmm ... could it be an access issue? How are you running this, in mgmt studio using Windows authentication? Are you sritsick, running this on your local machine, or is it run from a job or procedure? The only other thing I can think of is perhaps a typo.

yes I am running management studio using windows authentication, no I am mbergman which should have all privs needed. I am testing this from the studio management query (New Query). I have looked thoroughly for typos. I can't find any.

I'm running out of ideas, yet it still somehow seems an access or path issue. The machine you're using is a Windows OS version that uses "Documents and Settings?"

I think this is a permissions issue. Thanks for your help.
