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"

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.
