Hi Amy, Yes, sorry, I tried the *.* option to copy all files, and as I mentioned it copies ALL files including the .bat file. If I limit it to finding only the types of files I want to copy then it works, in my case*.xml. But it is rather limiting in the case that I had, say, 10 different file types I would have liked.
Anyway, I'll keep playing with it.

This is why it's so nice to have a little DOS in your pocket so you can customize it for the way you work. Jaime, Are you copying *.*? That copies everything. I don't know of an exclusionary command with copy, but it may exist-I'm not an expert, I just troll the web until I find what I need. ;-) For now, to copy everything except *.bat, you would need to specify only the file types to be copied, as in *.fm, *.backup.fm, *.backup.book, *.log, etc. For example: Copy *.backup.fm *.backup.book *.log *.pdf .\ProjectBackup\ Amy Sharp Geophysical Technical Writer ConocoPhillips Co.
