Hello, Everyone I see the board has changed over the years. I like the concept of trying to bring back an open chat. Question, Could someone give me a hand. I am trying to write a .Bat file. I thought I could use a text.doc to write one but it doesn't seem to work. I know you can write one in DOS but I never learned how to. Are the MS-Dos prompt and command.com the same? If someone could help me with how to save text as a .Bat file and the Dos ? I would really appreciate it. Thanx, intrigued :p

dammit Gizzy. Dont answer easy questions let me do them If u write in a word processor you have to save it as .bat , in the dos edit you just type "edit 'file'" and save as .bat . ok so gizzy answered that Oh yeah, the ms-dos prompt is command.com
