More batch files

  1. Feb 15, 2004 #1
    hi ladies and gents! this is my first post so excuse any stupidity on my part!!

    Basically I'm trying to create batch files but i have no programming experience in DOS. Fortunately I am only trying to achieve a simple goal.

    I effectively want to automize a kind of 'drag and drop' procedure: I want a program that takes a file from one directory and 'applies' it to an Exec program in another directory.

    I can't just associate the file extension with a program, because i want files from different directories to be associated with different exec programs- even though the file extensions remain the same.

    ie. All files in any given directory are to be associated with a particular program, but all files in another directory are to be applied with another program.

    I probably need to expand on the info I've given so far, but any help is greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance!
