writing a batch script with ownership changes and cacls permission changes

The specific circumstance is I have a folder that is used to store completed documents in for all to read but none to change. First of all the user who creates these documents needs a way to transfer them into this folder.

Once that occurs I need to remove the change permissions from that user and anyone else who was carried over from the originating folder.

Hence the reason for this loop.
g:
cd Quality
CD\MyFolder
for %a in (*.*) do cacls %a /T /G "X\Domain Admins":F "X\Domain Users":R "X\QualityDocCtrl-Admin":R<yes.txt

I also tried to get around the issue of ownership by changin the owner on the top folder manusally and checking the box that says to do the same for subfolders.

This loop does not work in a batch program it errors out saying a problem with a.

suggestions for doing the loop and changing the owner are appreciated,

sirbounty contributed the original suggestion,

thanks,


Don

Setup two shares.  One that allows users write access only to the resource, and the other that allows users read access only to the resource.
That way, users will only be able to write files to their X: for example, and everyone can read only with their Y:.

In a batch file, you must use a double % with the a - %%a
