CANNOT OPEN A SELECTED FILE BUT CAN OPEN OTHERS



  • I’m USING A COMMAND PROMPT AND BATCH FILE TO OPEN NOTEPAD AND A FILE.
    ANY OTHER FILE IN THE DIRECTORY OPENS NOTEPAD AND THE FILE, BUT ONE. I GET THIS MESSAGE
    Z:\BATCH\MRKV FILENAME.DAT 1>NUL.
    COMMAND LINE STOPS RIGHT THERE.
    NOTEPAD AND THE FILE DOES NOT OPEN.
    THEN I NEED TO CTRL C AND TERMINATE BATCH JOB.
    IF I OPEN NOTEPAD THE FILE IS OPEN IN NOTEPAD.
    ANY OTHER FILE WILL OPEN AND GO DIRECTLY TO NOTEPAD BUT THIS ONE.
    I HAVE USED AND OPENED THIS FILE WITH NO PROBLEM FOR YEARS.
    I HAVE DELETED THE FILE AND CREATED A NEW ONE… STILL DOES NOT OPEN.
    I’VE REBOOTED. STUMPTED.
    ANY IDEAS?

    THIS FILE HAS OPENED PREVIOUSLY FOR YEARS WITH NO PROBLEM. ANY IDE???
