Batch file: How to 'append' to a output file on a 'spool' command

I have this line.  I need it to 'append' to 'Step_1.txt' instead of overwriting it.  Can it  be done?

spool on to 'F:/EssbaseBackupLogs/Step_1.txt';

I'm not sure what you are talking about in terms of spool - but you can redirect output using > and >> -

command>OutputFileName.txt = redirect standard output, overwriting existing file
command>>OutputFileName.txt = redirect standard output, APPENDING to the existing file
Is this the Oracle SQL spool command? If so, it looks like there is an APPEND option:

SPO[OL] [file_name[.ext] [CRE[ATE] | REP[LACE] | APP[END]] | OFF | OUT]

No. It's a windows batch spool.
spool.exe? I don't have it on my XP/Pro machine. I have spoolsv.exe.
