DOS Batch update file

Trying to create a DOS BATCH file to copy an access database over from one location to another.

My source path is \\hq-file1\Files and Docs\Database\
My destination path is \\hq-file1\Files and Docs\Database\Vegas\

My issue is that dos does not recognize the "Files and Docs" name and I don't know how to represent the DOS equivalent of the file folder.  

Thanks.

Put the paths you are copying from in quotes.

"\\hq-file1\files and docs\database"
"\\hq-file1\files and docs\database\vegas"

here is my actual command line:

copy \\Hq-file1\Files and Docs\database\ucmt.mde \\Hq-file1\Files and Docs\database\SaltLake\Acct\ucmt_Test.mde

So do I put the quotes at the very begining and end or at the beginning and end of each path statement?

Here's the command you should use (and whenver possible, especially with share names, DON'T USE SPACES).  With file and folder names you can use the 8.3 characters on them.  Share names don't have that.

copy "\\Hq-file1\Files and Docs\database\ucmt.mde" "\\Hq-file1\Files and Docs\database\SaltLake\Acct\ucmt_Test.mde"
