Need to use the find command and evaluate if string not found

Hi currently I'm using this logic in a script (See below) however when I recently got '10 Files copied' my logic came up with an "%errorlevel%" = 0 and therefore I emailed the wrong message.
I need to come up with a different error check maybe some thing that states that if 'Files copied' not found then "%errorlevel%" = 0 or 1. How would I do this?

Thanks,
7Souls

find /i "0 File(s) copied"

"\\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt"
if %errorlevel% EQU 1 (D:\adminscripts\common\blat262\full\blat -to EMail1y@domain subject "XCOPY

of RMAN Online Backup of DSISGTD was Successful" -bodyf

\\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt
) else (D:\adminscripts\common\blat262\full\blat -to EMail1y@domain  -subject "XCOPY of RMAN Online

Backup of DSISGTD Failed,so please restart XCOPY before next weekly backup" -bodyf

\\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt

The problem is that xcopy displays the text "File(s) copied" even if no files are copied, correct?  Otherwise you could just do this:

  find "File(s) copied"  "Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt"
  if %errorlevel% EQU 0 ( echo Files Copied ) else (echo Files NOT copied )

Hi knightEknight,

This makes sense xcopy does do this so if xcopy finds "File(s) copied" the %errorlevel% is 0 otherwise if find command doesn't find it the %errorlevel% is 1 correct. However what happens if I get a "0 File(s) copied" would that be the same as no files copied?

Thanks,

Try this instead, it will only find the 0 line.

findstr /i /r /c:"^ *0 File(s) copied" "\\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Another approach is to trap the error right in the copy itself, so something like this:

xcopy [your command stuff here] && (
  D:\adminscripts\common\blat262\full\blat -to EMail1y@domain subject "XCOPY of RMAN Online Backup of DSISGTD was Successful" -bodyf \\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt
) || (
  D:\adminscripts\common\blat262\full\blat -to EMail1y@domain  -subject "XCOPY of RMAN Online Backup of DSISGTD Failed,so please restart XCOPY before next weekly backup" -bodyf \\dbstor\oraclebkup$\devorasisgtid\rman\logs\Xcopy_rman_backup_%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%.txt
)

How about this?

  findstr/r "^0.File(s).copied"

Hi billprew,

I am currently testing your suggestion 'findstr /i /r /c:"^ *0 File(s) copied"'. I will let you know what I get.
