How to call a command in a batch file?

Hi,

I would like to get the output of below command emailed to me in a windows2003 server.

"bpimagelist -hoursago 24 -U"

I will be using "blat" to email the output of this command.But not sure how the above command is called for in a batch file when executed.

Would appreciate if anybody can put down the syntax.

Thnaks

Hi,

I tried this:

blat "D:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\display_jobs.bat" -s test -to <emailaddress>
But receiving the text above and not the output of the text when executed.

Guys, I need to email the output of "D:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\display_jobs.bat".

You'll have to save the output of the batch file to a temporary file using redirection, and then attach or include it in your mail. However, I've never heard of the blat command, so you'll have to look up the syntax for that yourself.
