This is a top-level Batch question.

I have an action that essentially saves-for-web (the action command label is "export") the open file as a JPG, then Close.
I have 700 files to process. (convert from PDF to jpg)

When I Automate> Batch,  it wants to open them all at once.
What setting(s) do i use to do them one at a time?  (or do i need to use a droplet?)
The only settings i currently have are
Suppress File Open Options Dialogs
and Destination> Save and Close> Override Action SAVE AS Commands  (which i thought would do the CLOSE part since i have no .psd file save in my action)

p.s. when i had tried a droplet, it too would open them all.
So now i'm wondering if my Action (consists of only two commands:  export, close) is correct.
(I usually don't have problems at all with actions).
I have to click on the PLAY triangle button and then it executes each opened file (from the droplet, for instance)
