    That's indeed due to the space in "program files". Whenever there's an "illegal" character in a pathname, use quotes to ensure that the path is seen as 1 part:
    [code]
    Copy "C:Program FilesProjectsInput1.IN" 2.In
    [/code]
    All batch files are simple text files. Any executable, which can append lines to a text file, can append lines to a batch file.
