Hi

you need to create bat file

enter the information in file and then press f6 for save
Hi Zubair,

Thanks for your Answer.

Actually i saved the above script as a .bat file and running.
1st time if i enter "aaa" which was not there in that path it prompts me to enter again.
But if i enter "bbb" which was there in that path it runs fine.
now again it go to menu.
Now If I enter "bbb" or "ccc" which were there in the path it needs to run but it prompts me to enter again.
So I understood that loop works fine 1st time but not later.
Any help matters.
Thanks.
