"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

And if you use quotes on the command line (required if they contain spaces), like:

myscript "c:\MyFolder" "Myfile.csv"

Open in new window

Then %1 and %2 will also have the quotes around the value.  You can remove those when referencing by using %~1 and %~2.
