Sqlplus in Batch script

I am using batch script to invoke sqlplus  to execute   sqlfiles in various directories.  
for example  
--Release_1,25 ---------------------------------<directory>
     --Release_1.25.sql --------------------------<file>
      --4401 --------------------------------------------<directory>
           ----4401.sql ------------------------------------<File>
             ---4402.sql -------------------------------------<file>

Release_1.25.sql  follwoign things

<etc etc>

my batch script calls

sqlplus -S User/PWD@db  @<path/to/>Release_1.25.sql

I get  the error
SP2-0310: unable to open file "4401/4401.sql"
SP2-0310: unable to open file "4402/4402.sql"

It looks like Sql plus find the calling script Release_1.25.sql but is unable to find path s is not able to find the path

I did a very simple test of this in a folder here, seemed to work fine, but ONLY if my default directory was set to the folder where the first script is located, in your case the "Release_1,25" folder.  I tried it from outside that folder and the first script ran but the other two failed.

I agree the documentation for @@ makes it sound like it should work either way, but it doesn't seem to on Windows.

So add a CD (or PUSHD / POPD) to your "Release_1,25" folder before running the first main SQL, should work.
