Its been longer than I realized since I had to wrtie an decent batch file script. The one I need is a bit more robust than I'm used to. Can someone give me some ideas on the commands and syntax to write a batch file that will move a group of files from one directory to another series of directories based on a identifier in the name... I need the resulting dispersed files the retain their file level names, but create a folder in the destination directory that is named based on the date of the move. I need empty zip files to be deleted and logging in case there are errors. I need an email or report sent to me if this process fails... Please assist.
