If I include all the text below in a batch file it will open and close very fast (blink) and never use the pause command. If I commnet-out the FOR syntax the dos window will remain open.

Also the following text run fine as long as I use the manual command prompt, batch files are the problem.....

CD C:\REPORTS

For %a IN (*.*) do REN %a %a.rtf
