What I want to do seems very simple:
I have a folder in Windows containing items of various types including PDF files, TXT files, and subdirectories. I am writing a one line .bat file to pull ONLY the PDF file names into a new text file.
So far this is what I have in the .bat:
dir *.pdf /b > PDF_LIST.txt
This gives the following output in a PDF_LIST.txt file:
A.pdf B.pdf C.pdf
I would like to drop the ".pdf" portion of each line in the txt file, since I obviously know already that each file is in PDF format by the *.pdf parameter in my dir statement.
This would just make it easier for me to copy/paste all the file names directly from the text file into a word document for a transmittal I'm sending to my customer. If you can suggest a better or easier way to get the file list without using a batch file that would also would be helpful.
