I have an script in a DTS package that executes a *.bat file (code enclosed at the bottom). When I execute the script and the bat file, I need the script to trigger the DTSTaskExecResult_Success After the bat file is finished running. How can I achieve this?

'  Visual Basic ActiveX Script

Function Main()

Dim shell
set shell = createobject("wscript.shell")
shell.run "I:\applications\vps\Appl\HENTVPS.BAT"
      Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
End Function
