My line of code is

Exec xp_cmdshell 'bcp "Select Customer, Invoice from CompanyA.dbo.ArInvoice" queryout "C:\bcptest.txt -S HPELITE\MSSQLSERVER12 " -T -c -t,'

this does not work...

SQLState = S0002, NativeError-208
Error=[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Invalid object name 'CompanyA.dbo.ArInvoice'.
SQLState=37000. Native Error = 8180
Error=[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Statement(s) could not be prepared
NULL


Exec xp_cmdshell 'bcp "Select * from sysfiles" query out "C:\bcptext.txt" -T -c -t,' works very well.. exports looks perfect

Are your quotation marks correct? I see you have a quotation mark that starts after "queryout", but ends after the server instance name.

It should be:

Exec xp_cmdshell 'bcp "Select Customer, Invoice from CompanyA.dbo.ArInvoice" queryout "C:\bcptest.txt" -S HPELITE\MSSQLSERVER12  -T -c -t,'

Also, check if there are any spaces in the DB name or the object name. If yes, use square brackets:

Exec xp_cmdshell 'bcp "Select Customer, Invoice from [CompanyA].[dbo].[ArInvoice]" queryout "C:\bcptest.txt" -S HPELITE\MSSQLSERVER12  -T -c -t,'

Invalid object name 'CompanyA.dbo.ArInvoice'.

1) Is the db name "CompanyA" valid?  
2) Does that table name exist in that db?  
3) Does the user running the bcp have access rights to that table?
