Hi,

You might try:

echo cmd /c filename>>c:\temp\abcd.txt

like shinobun said
 echo "cmd /c > filename" >> c:\temp\abcd.txt
will add the test "cmd /c > filename" to the end of the file.

but more importantly, what's that you are trying to do? the output of comand "cmd /c" will be redirected directed to filename but isn't "cmd /c" used to execute a command? i don't see that as part of your string. as it stands, it will probably just add a blank line to your file (whenever that command gets run). is this what you wanted to do?
