    Unanswered: bcp error (csv to sqlserver)

    Hi everybody
    I am using bcp to insert data from csv file to sql server . The problem that i am facing is that, The heading in the csv file is populating in the tables
    also the datas are not inserting.
    I dosent want the first row in the csv which holds the heading to insert in the table
    Does anybody know to solve this problem
    I am using this code

    CREATE procedure usp_ImportMultipleFilesBCP @servername varchar(128),
    @DatabaseName varchar(128), @filepath varchar(500), @pattern varchar(100),
    @TableName varchar(128)
    declare @query varchar(1000)
    declare @max1 int
    declare @count1 int
    Declare @filename varchar(100)
    set @count1 =0
    create table #x (name varchar(200))
    set @query ='master.dbo.xp_cmdshell "dir '+@filepath+@pattern +' /b"'
    insert #x exec (@query)
    delete from #x where name is NULL
    select identity(int,1,1) as ID, name into #y from #x
    drop table #x
    set @max1 = (select max(ID) from #y)
    --print @max1
    --print @count1
    --select * from #y
    While @count1 <= @max1
    set @count1=@count1+1
    set @filename = (select name from #y where [id] = @count1)
    set @Query ='bcp "'+ @databasename+'.dbo.'+@Tablename + '"
    in "'+ @Filepath+@Filename+'" -S' + @servername + ' -T -c -r\n -t,'
    set @Query = 'MASTER.DBO.xp_cmdshell '+ "'"+ @query +"'"
    --print @query
    EXEC ( @query)
    --insert into logtable (query) select @query

    drop table #y

    Exec usp_ImportMultipleFilesBCP 'servername','databasename','c:\Myimport\','aa.csv ','Tablename'

    when I execute this I get an error like

    usage: bcp {dbtable | query} {in | out | queryout | format} datafile
    [-m maxerrors] [-f formatfile] [-e errfile]
    [-F firstrow] [-L lastrow] [-b batchsize]

    [-S server name] [-U username] [-P password]
    [-T trusted connection] [-v version] [-R regional enable]
    [-k keep null values] [-E keep identity values]
    [-h "load hints"]

    If anybody knows pls reply

    Thumbs up

    Your error msg suggests that there is some problem with the syntax you have use to execute BCP, Kindly check the command line syntax of BCP with the one you have used in the stored procedure...
