Command Prompt for Windows

Command CALL


Run a second batch file, then return to the first batch file when the second batch file ends.


CALL [drive:][path]filename [batch-parameters]
[drive:][path]filenameBatch file name and location.
batch-parametersAny command line information that is used by the batch file.


When there is no need to return to the original batch file, then use the following syntax, without the CALL command :-

[drive:][path]filename [batch-parameters]

When the CALL command is used at the command prompt to run a batch file, the batch file will be executed in a separate window.
