My boss has challenged me to find a way to copy a database file from our server to certain users' desktops via our login script or other batch file. He does not want it copied to the allusers desktop. Our users are all on XP machines.

Thanks in advance,
shcurry

The syntax of the command is incorrect.

Thanks again!
