I have a text file of a few hundred IP addresses. I want to read each IP from the file.
After I obtain the IP, I'll ping the address.
If the ping result is a success I want to run a whole bunch of other batch commands (I've got about 10 lines of code) - then go to the next IP in the text file when done.
If the ping result is a failure, just go to the next IP on the list.

I think I'm better off not posting my current code that doesn't work! Thanks guys.

@echo off
for /F %%I in (iplist.txt) do (
  ping -n 1 -w 100 %%I >nul && (
     REM put your commands here, IP is %%I
  )
)

this should do it...drop your code after the 'success' message
@echo off
for /f %%a in (ip.txt) do call :pingit %%a
goto :eof
 
:pingit
set ip=%1
ping %ip% -n 1
if %errorlevel%==0 goto success
goto :eof
 
:success
Echo %ip% success!

SirBounty - that's the clearest answer for me. I actually was checking in to say I got the solution myself, similar to yours but instead of calling a local routine, I call another .bat and send my value to it as %1. I had already read 1 or 2 of the examples SysExpert sent - the first isn't any help but the last 2 are workable. But, I don't have a good understanding of the syntax. Same as Qlemo's input. I don't understand the double && or the use of the parenthesis. I'll have to look it up.

Thanks all !!  I really appreciate the quick replies. You guys and this site are great.
