I need to do BCP export with special characters (é,õ etc.). Currently I am using
bcp ...queryout... -T -w

which gives the text file in Unicode with the special characters.

However now I need to send the BCP in UTF-8 format now. I tried using UTF-8 codepage -C 65001, didn't work. Can anyone help? Thanks!

BCP support for UTF-8 was removed a couple of versions ago - don't ask me why.
You will probably have to use SSIS (unless it's changed since the last time I needed it).

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
