    You can't get headings with bcp
    I suggest you run your select in isql
    then output the results to a file and import into excel as fixed text
    Or better yet:
    from excel, click Data, Get External Data, New Database Query
    Choose your ODBC data source defined for your Sybase database
    Enter and run your query.
