    Batch file (2002 SP1)

    Hello there, I'm trying to do a basic batch file for users to have in their 'Start up' folder, to automatically update any newer files.
    The problem I'm having is the thing does not work! I think it maybe due to spaces in the path; i.e. Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersDesktop.

    Does anybody know how this can be overcome?

    Have you tried enclosing the complete path/file name in quotes, e.g. "Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersDesktopFrontend.mdb" or something like that?

    If that doesn't help, please provide some details of the batch file.
