Batch file addressing help

Here is the scenario:

I have a batch file sitting in the folder 704011007-2695673140 . This is on a server being accessed through a mapped drive setup. So the drive on the server is E which is Z as the mapped drive on the computer I am using. I thought I would mention this in case this could cause problems.

The following is in the batch file...

md "\\e$\WorkQueue Inet\704011007-2695673140"
copy "e:\images\2. Pot O Gold Tournament\Kalamazoo Kings\14 YR\GAME 9\8353-DCM-200-2efv9919.jpg" "\\e$\WorkQueue Inet\704011007-2695673140\5x7 Print-8353-DCM-200-2efv9919.jpg"

Questions:
- does the md... cause issues when the folder already exists.
- if i need to clarify anything please ask

THANKS!

"does the md... cause issues when the folder already exists." - no, but you can set it to only process if it doesn't using:

set folder="\\e$\WorkQueue Inet\704011007-2695673140"
if not exist %folder% then md %folder%

e$ is the 'share' - you really need the full path of the server...
Something like

Set folder=\\servername\e$\WorkQueue Inet\704011007-2695673140
if not exist "%folder%" md "%folder%"
copy "e:\images\2. Pot O Gold Tournament\Kalamazoo Kings\14 YR\GAME 9\8353-DCM-200-2efv9919.jpg" "%folder%\5x7 Print-8353-DCM-200-2efv9919.jpg"

or...

as you are running it from Z: drive mapped to that folder already then you could use z:

"I have a batch file sitting in the folder 704011007-2695673140"
md "\\e$\WorkQueue Inet\704011007-2695673140"

So if the batch file is already in the dir. there is no point making the directory really, is there and also the current directory of the batch file should be that directory so just

copy "e:\images\2. Pot O Gold Tournament\Kalamazoo Kings\14 YR\GAME 9\8353-DCM-200-2efv9919.jpg" .

should copy it to the batch file directory
