JIEXA created a batch file for me that generates the next sequential number and copies to clipboard.
However these needs to work over a peer-to-peer network so that users at different PC's can get access to the latest number.
Is this possible with a batch file?
Please advise...

You can use shared directory:
  \\spar-kle-pc\share-name\msg.bat
or:
  \\spar-kle-pc\c$\permitted-to-write-directory\msg.bat

Absolutely. You will possibly need to change the batch file to reflect the correct paths for your network share or destination. You can also utilize map drives to simplify this process.
