copying files from UNC in batch

Hello,

  I am trying to copy files in UNC that are not drive mapped on the server. Apparently its not working for UNC, works file for full filenames.


My input file looks like:

"\\abc12244\myPDFS\firstfile.pdf","CompanyA.pdf","SubA","A"


My batch code to copy looks like:

set BaseDir=C:\Base
set AllDir=C:\All

 for /f "usebackq tokens=1-4 delims=," %%A in ("%ControlFile%") do (
  call :DoIt %%A %%B %%C %%D
 )


:DoIt

       if not exist "%BaseDir%\" mkdir "%BaseDir%"
        if not exist "%BaseDir%\%~4\" mkdir "%BaseDir%\%~4"
        if not exist "%BaseDir%\%~4\%~3\" mkdir "%BaseDir%\%~4\%~3"
        copy /Y "%1" "%BaseDir%\%~4\%~3\%~2"

       if not exist "%AllDir%\" mkdir "%AllDir%"

"Copy" can definitely use UNC paths.
There's actually no need for the "DoIt" subroutine, it only makes things look more complicated. If you use it, you need to leave the script with a "goto :eof" before the :DoIt label; if you don't do this, you'll get errors, because the script will continue after it's done processing the input file, and then use the command line arguments (if any) in the DoIt loop.
Then there's no need to create the subfolders one after another. Last time that was required was in DOS, not in any NT based command shell.
So try this:
@echo off
setlocal
set ControlFile=C:\Temp\test.txt
set BaseDir=C:\Base
set AllDir=C:\All
for /f "usebackq tokens=1-4 delims=," %%A in ("%ControlFile%") do (
	if not exist "%BaseDir%\%%~D\%%~C" mkdir "%BaseDir%\%%~D\%%~C"
	copy /Y "%%~A" "%BaseDir%\%%~D\%%~C\%%~B"
)
if not exist "%AllDir%\" mkdir "%AllDir%"
