Hi,

Here is what i have so far:

@echo off
cls
FOR /f "tokens=1" %%a in (hosts.txt) do xcopy /Y E:\SyLink.xml "\\%%a\c$\Program Files\Sygate\SSA\SyLinkef.xml"
echo Copying file SyLink.xml to %%a.
pause

is it possible to execute multiple commands in that For loop, for example:
FOR something DO command1 command2 command3

Thanks
