Given t.bat  

for /l %%x in (2, 1, 15) do (echo."StationNumber=%%x" 1> edge2%%x%.txt
for /l %%y in (2, 1, 3) do (

echo.copy a.txt +edge2%%y%.txt +b.txt edgex%%y%.txt >>x.txt

when I execute t.bat from a command prompt I get in x.txt

copy a.txt +edge22.txt
copy a.txt +edge23.txt

why am I not getting
copy a.txt+edge22.txt+b.txt edgex22.txt  
copy a.txt+edge23.txt+b.txt edgex23.txt


Please don't give me vbs or other programming languages.. I want to know why this is not working in a bat file.
