Wow, this is great timing!!!:D
I was just going to complain:rolleyes: about the same thing! You see, I use an initial scan of the report and create a text file contain information I want to use to filter for the next pass. The problem I was having was that in my batch file I was checking if the value was numeric (because I wanted to skip over the column title and the EOF marker) but for some reason the EOF marker was considered numeric (test: the value was able to successfully be multiplied by 1) and therefore was being used in the batch for the parameter of the second pass... what a mess:eek:. Now that I have modified it to not add the EOF marker, my batch works great.
PS Sorry Diony for the piggyback:(.
