Unhappy Auto box problem

Can anyone please help, my 2001 330i touring will not go into drive, it will only go as far as neutral, it has the auto box with switch able/ sports/ manual mode option.Is it likely to be a major expense, mileage is approx 125000.
Thanks Stuart:

Has the fluid ever been changed? The issue may be a serious one.

It may just be the bowden cable snagging or come adrift, or the selector in the valve control body (inside the box) either way you'll have to raise the car in the air to inspect.
