Hi,

I require execute a number (10) of powershell commands. Is it possible to store them in a batch file? How do I execute the powershell commands within the batch file?

PS C:\users\farooquia> send-mailmessage -to "User01 <glenns@xxxx.com>" -SmtpServer "outlook.xxxx.com"  -from "U
er02 <johni@nbad.com>" -subject "Test mail" -attachments "c:\report\ir000003.pdf"

PS C:\users\farooquia> send-mailmessage -to "User01 <jack@xxx.com>" -SmtpServer "outlook.xxxx.com"  -from "U
er02 <john@xxxx.com>" -subject "Test mail" -attachments "c:\report\ir000003.pdf"

Also, please advise how can I attach more than one file to the above command eg report ir000003.pdf and ir000006.pdf

Thanks

just store all the commands in a filename.ps1 file  (note extension: ps1) and run in powershell
eg:

PS  c:\> c:\filename.ps1

IHi,

Thanks for your reply. I don't want to run it within power shell.

save the following line in filename.bat:

%windir%\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command psfile.ps1

#=======================
and save all your powershell commands in psfile.ps1 file
