after that i need result txt file
Example:c:\skipped.txt (not moved File Numbers) how to create in cmd
how to write in command prompt

  • it's the same command, just change %a to %%a in batch file, also you can redirect the output (all of it, not just the skipped ones) to a file using the >> operator so your command becomes for /f %%a in ([SRC]) do move %%a [DIST] >> 'LOG'

    sentences like 'it didn't work' and 'not working' doesn't give the others any information at all, can you please specify what you used (a sample of code) and what the result/error was

  • @srinuu: What is the command you entered based on what tbc wrote? Did you include [SRC] and [DIST] as-is?

here is the command for cmd:

for /f %a in (Y:\el.txt) do move "%a" "C:\Users\srinu\Desktop\test"

in a batch file:

for /f %%a in (Y:\el.txt) do @move "%%a" "C:\Users\srinu\Desktop\test" >> log.txt
