    Can't run .bat file with QMC > Supporting Tasks > External Program

    Mika Lindman

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to automate table to csv -export on reload. I've figured out that QMC automation doesn't handle the document events properly, and I need to do this from the command line, eg. Qv.exe /R xxx.qvw.

      For some reason though, I can't get the Supporting Tasks > External Program task to work properly.

      At the moment I have a simple .bat:

       

      REM ... my real load ....

      ECHO "Test"

      EXIT

       

      I have configured the external task with this parameter:

       

      Command line statement: cmd "c:\reload.bat"

       

      When I start the task, it just gets stuck on "Running" status, and never completing.

       

      What should I set as the "command line statement" parameter?
