Hi guye,

I am unable to delete multiple files using "mdelete". I get this message as "Type Set to A".

Thanks

Sadat,

You posted this to the Databases (General) Topic Area.  It would probably fit batter under the Windows 2K3 TA. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Windows_Server_2003/

That being said before trying the mdelete try typing in "binary". And to change whether it asks for each delete type prompt to change the interaction mode.

That's not an error message.  I get the same thing.  When I say:

mdelete *.txt

And I don't have any .txt files, then I get:

200 Type set to A.
Cannot find list of remote files.

However, if the files exist and I am in interactive mode, it lists the files one by one and prompts me to delete.

Thenk, if I say:

PROMPT

It will turn off interactive mode and then I do:

mdelete *.txt

and it responds with:

200 Type set to A.
250 DELE command successful.
250 DELE command successful.
