I want FINDSTR to search for two text occurances in order.

ex. John Smith
       Jane Doe
       Bob Dole

I tried the below syntax in the batch file;

type 837b.txt | findstr "NM1.QD" "REF.D9" >> ClaimNo.txt

type 837b.txt | findstr "NM1.QD" AND "REF.D9" >> ClaimNo.txt

type 837b.txt | findstr "NM1.QD"  | findstr  "REF.D9" >> ClaimNo.txt

FYI - NM1*QD precedes the name and REF*D9 preceded the ClaimNo

None work in combination. Will also appreciate vbs solution.
