The trick to using DOSCMD with file and folder names that contain spaces is to use single quotes as string delimiters for the purposes of your Robo-FTP command script and double quotes for the values actually passed to DOS.


  1  ; make two folders with spaces in the name
  2  MAKEDIR "c:\A nice folder"
  3  MAKEDIR "c:\A junk folder"
  4  
  5  ; make two files in one of the folders
  6  WRITEFILE "c:\a nice folder\file1.txt" "first test file" 
  7  WRITEFILE "c:\a nice folder\file2.txt" "second test file" 
  8  
  9  ; make a string that contains the DOS command
 10  ; note the outer single quotes and inner double quotes
 11  SET cmd = 'COPY "c:\A nice folder\*.txt" "c:\A junk folder\"'
 12  
 13  ; run the DOS command
 14  DOSCMD cmd
 15  
 16  ; verify the file1.txt file exists in both folders
 17  GETNEXTFILE "c:\a nice folder\file1.txt"
 18  GETNEXTFILE "c:\a junk folder\file1.txt"
 19  
 20  ; verify the file2.txt file exists in both folders
 21  GETNEXTFILE "c:\a nice folder\file2.txt"
 22  GETNEXTFILE "c:\a junk folder\file2.txt"
