I need a batch file to scan the attached file for the E01, E11 and E18 characters and replace them all with S11.  Open the attached and you will see what I mean. I then either need the batch to resave the file as the original filename, or have it save a new file with the output.  I need everything in the file carried over to the new file with the changes made above.

Please give this a whirl.

Run the batch file passing the file as a parameter like this:

    BATCH 120415.txt

Where 'BATCH' is the name of your batch file and '120415.txt' is the name of your text file.
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

(for /f "tokens=* usebackq" %%a in ("%~1") do (
  set Line=%%a
  set Line=!Line:,E01,=,S11,!
  set Line=!Line:,E11,=,S11,!
  set Line=!Line:,E18,=,S11,!
  echo !Line!
))>"%~1.tmp"

move /y "%~1.tmp" "%~1"

Open in new window
