Which BCP are you really talking about? The BCP I used is the one
that comes with MS SQL Server 7, which is the only BCP I know that
understands Unicode. But then again, I haven't been playing with
Sybase for the last four years. I presume their BCP supports Unicode
these days as well, but the two BCP are two different animals.

And since you asked: I'm running Windows NT, SP5. US-English version,
with Regional settings set to Swedish. And I haven't been doing any
particular tweaks for Unicode as I can recall. I could add that I
have not installed Office 2000.
