I have pgp commandline installed on my server.  I get a pgp file in a folder on my server everyday.  I need to automate the decrypting of the file.  the command to decrypt is
pgp --decrypt filename
and the filename will be coming in a paramenter.

Here is a batch sample that takes one parameter.

It checks to make sure a parameter was passed in, then makes sure the parameter is an existing file and then calls the pgp command.

[START CODE]
@echo off

:: the incoming parameter will be stored in %1
:: make sure we have a parameter
if "%1"=="" goto DONE

:: now make sure it is a file that exists
if exist %1 (
   pgp --decrypt %1
)

:: just a tag so we can skip to the end if no
:: file name was passed in
:DONE
[END CODE]

I know this is kind of hard to follow but any clue on why it renames it in the C:\originalcsv folder but then it doesn't copy it to the
C:\BulkProcessor_LambentTesting\BulkProcessorTest\castest\DateOfDeath folder.
[code]
@echo off
:: the incoming parameter will be stored in %1
:: make sure we have a parameter
if "%1"=="" goto DONE

:: now make sure it is a file that exists
if exist %1 (
   pgp --passphrase "xxxxxx" --decrypt %1 --output C:\originalcsv\
)
setlocal
set set count=0
::
:: Default extension
if %ext%.==. set ext=.csv
::
:: Default path
:: Loop for all files in specified path; split name and extension
for %%a in (C:\originalcsv\*) do if "%%~xa".=="". call :process "%%~a" "%%~na"
echo.
echo %count% files found
echo.
goto :eof

:process
set f=%1
set n=%2
set /a count+=1
set new="%p%%n:~1,-1%%ext%"
set newf=%n:~1,-1%%ext%"
ren %f% %new%
copy %new% C:\BulkProcessor_LambentTesting\BulkProcessorTest\castest\DateOfDeath\%newf%
goto :eof
C:\BulkProcessor_LambentTesting\BatchProcessTrigger.exe
[/code]

Interesting......remove the @echo off line while you are testing and then see what it says at the copy line.

Make sure you run it from a command window so you can see the results.

Seeing the actual commands and any error codes should help.

Well I really need some help help here  I got everything working till the bottom.  I just can't get it to call that .bat on the bottom.  But when I call the .bat directly from the command line it works fine.
[code]
@echo off
:: the incoming parameter will be stored in %1
:: make sure we have a parameter
if "%1"=="" goto DONE

:: now make sure it is a file that exists
if exist %1 (
   pgp --passphrase "xxxx" --decrypt %1 --output C:\BulkProcessor_LambentTesting\BulkProcessorTest\castest\DateOfDeath\
)
setlocal
set set count=0
::
:: Default extension
if %ext%.==. set ext=.csv
::
:: Default path
:: Loop for all files in specified path; split name and extension
for %%a in (C:\BulkProcessor_LambentTesting\BulkProcessorTest\castest\DateOfDeath\*) do if "%%~xa".=="". call :process "%%~a" "%%~na"
echo.
echo %count% files found
echo.
goto :eof

:process
set f=%1
set n=%2
set /a count+=1
set new="%p%%n:~1,-1%%ext%"
set newf=%n:~1,-1%%ext%"
ren %f% %new%
goto :eof
C:\Documents and Settings\system account\Desktop\automation\batch.bat
[/code]

To execute a batch file from within another batch file, you usually need to use the keyword call.

Something like:   call "C:\Documents and Settings\system account\Desktop\automation\batch.bat" ( I am using the quotes because of the spaces in the path. )

Right before you are trying to call the batch file, you have a goto statement.  Could that goto statement be skipping your attempt to call the batch file?
