Batch File[Advanced]: FOR Sub-loop does not work

Hi there,

The FOR loop between lines 13 and 17 does not work.  However, if I remove it from the FOR...%%A... loop, it works.

Could you please fix it?
And while at it, if you have ideas to improve my script, please share your wisdom.

Thanks for your help,
Rene

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Line 8 should be:

    FOR /F "delims=\ " %%A IN ('NET VIEW ^| FINDSTR -i "\\"') DO (

(you missed the closing double-quote after '\\')

Does it still require attention?

You can also delete lines 17 through 20 - although, I guess this is intentional while you're testing the inner FOR-loop between lines 13 and 17.
