    Wrong forum? Don't think question has anything to do with Excel...

    At any rate, depending on your need, you can do one of the following.
    1. If you want cmd prompt displayed and kept after execution.
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    2. If not just remove cmd /k

    These should go at very end of *.bat file.

    I wonder how many members even know how to code in DOS, let alone what a BAT file is?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
