A batch file is nothing but a text file. There are File I/O statements that
you can use to write a text file. The Open, Close, and Print # statements
are three to look up in Help as a start. _What_ you need to put in the batch
file is up to you.

If there was more to this question than met the eye... post back to clarify
and perhaps someone can be more specific.

Thanks Bas Cost Budde and Larry Linson for your quick responses. I
have investigate the Input/Output methods and now am left wondering how
to write the file without the dreaded quotation marks at the beginning
and end of every line in the file? Any thoughts?

Tell me how you get those *in* and I'll tell you how to not have them.
:-) but seriously, I assume you have coded something? Show it!
