Im having a slight problem with a batch file.
It is having issues with lines in a text file that it acts against (groups.txt) where the lines have an "&" in the line.
For these lines, i get an error like the following:
eg. the following is the line in groups.txt which is "TESTING R&C GLO"
Processing TESTING R <-- see how it has trouble reading the "& as in R&C GLO
"C is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
The script continues though.
I just dont want to see these error messages.
Here is the batch file in the code snippet.
When the batch file creates a file for each group, it returns the usernames correctly, but the filenames are wrong, that is....it creates the filenames but does not include the "&" and everything following it.
1) I want to avoid the errors when running the batch file from a command line
2) I want the & to be includes as part of the filename
3) I dont know why when i run the batch file, that the script has an issue with lines having "&".
Any help greatly appreciated.
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('type "%InputFile%"') do (
echo Processing %Group% ...
if exist "%GroupFile%" del "%GroupFile%"
for /f "tokens=2 delims=,=" %%a in ('dsquery group -name "%Group%" ^| dsget group -members') do (
>>"%GroupFile%" echo %%a
