Copy file contents from Notebad to WordPad

Last Modified: 2012-08-22
I have a text file that has some hidden characters which show up in WordPad, but not in notepad.
When I try to execute a script on my server with this file, it errors out because the line feeds aren't there.

How can I write a batch file which opens the text file and copies all contents, then writes those contents to a WordPad document?
