Troubleshooting Question

Batch file not copying second file.

Last Modified: 2020-12-14
Hi Experts,

I have a batch file containing the following.

del "C:\ImportVisitReport\Schedule List .csv"
del "w:\Schedule List .csv"
node C:\ImportVisitReport\HHA-v4.js
copy "C:\ImportVisitReport\Schedule List .csv" "w:\Schedule List .csv"
Where the js file downloads Schedule list .csv file into the local C:\ImportsVisitReport folder.

When I do them step by step it works, however when running the batch file only the C:\ImportsVisitReport\Schedule list file gets updated, while the W:\Schedule list file remains the old one.

Any idea why is that?
