To start with, see the code below. How do you want to edit the dates? Provide them when the batch is run, so you are asked for it? Or using actual date? The code shown asks for both dates.

@echo off
set /P fromdate=From Date: 
set /P todate=To Date: 
(echo use test
 echo go
 echo exec test..batch_statistics "%fromdate%","%todate%"
 echo go
) | isql -U -P -S -oc:\batch_statistics.err

If your isql line works, mine should, too.

You have to put values in for -U (user id) -P (password), and -S (server).

Just use ISQL from the command line until you get the login stuff correct.
