Does a file named "Sample" (with no extensions) exist in the folder "D:\BEM_Source\"?
Does the SQL Server service account have permission to that folder?

So, the obvious thing is - does 'D:\BEM_Source\Sample' exist in that folder and on the server that the command is being run from? If I run a Bulk Insert from my PC but connected to server 'Fred1', the file has to be on 'Fred1'.

If it is in the correct location, can you open the file with a text editor? Just to make sure it isn't corrupt or has attributes/permissions set that make it impossible to open for some strange reason.

Not asking about the login you are using to SQL Server. Asking about the account that SQL Server runs under.

The file name you're specifying has no extension. Go to that folder on the server and make sure that the file there also has no extension (remember windows hides extensions by default). Don't guess, access that folder on the server and check exactly what the name is.

That could be part of the problem.

First, have you logged on to the server and checked exactly what that file's name and extension is?
