    Following that link, I'm asked to log in or create an account. I'm not sure that I want that, not knowing the consequences...

    Batch-running macros from the DOS command line (Wo

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Andrew77 on 24-Mar-05 17:08. Fixed link. Argh. Thanks, Jan.)</P>Howdy Loungers,

    I often need to run one or two different macros on a big batch of arbitrary files. I decided to figure out a way to do it right from the command line, something like this:
    <pre>> batchmacro MyMacro *.doc
    </pre>

    This article on the O'Reilly Network explains how to do it using your choice of three OpenSource scripting languages and COM.

    Putting the script in your WINDOWS folder makes it available from any directory. I've found it an indispensable tool. Hope someone else finds it useful too!

    Cheers,
