: I have A LOT (hundreds) of txt files in multiple subfolders, spread across 4 networked servers. They contain data (name, company, tax id, phone number, etc.). I would like to make a batch to search all files in all of those subfolders, and export certain info into a spreadsheet (actual filename searched, and specific data found inside: name, company, tax id, phone).

Also, would it be possible for the batch to DEL the file IF it found a specific tax id inside the file? Would it be listed on the exported spreadsheet, or not?

Based on my limited knowledge of DOS, it seems that several individual batches need to be created... unless you can create/call a batch within a batch???
