Hi Gurus,

I need to search all sub-directories for a set of files that need to be there in all of them prior to running a load.
can anyone please suggest an easy way to do so..for instance in directory stage, I have 10 sub-directories , and I need to verify each of them have files load1.csv, load2csv, load3.csv.

Thanks a lot for all your help!

There are many ways to do that.
@echo off
set reqfiles=load1.csv load2.csv load3.csv
set numfiles=3
pushd .
for /D %%D in (C:\Stage) do (
  cd /D %%D
  for /F %%C in ('dir %reqfiles" /b ^| find /c /v ""') do if %%C equ %numfile% echo %%D is ok
)
popd

Just add the wildcards to the file list, and change the numFiles accordingly.
