    Extended error nnn means that the error couldn't be found between the internal error messages in Command.com OR that Command.com couldn't be found.

    Command /c MD xxx is unnecessary but correct syntax.

    Thank you Ate, the reason I'm using command.com is because I'm writing a program in Clarion that runs a few dos commands. It is for a client who uses a citrix server and I think it is an error with citrix more than it is with dos. I think your answer will help out a lot....

    Thanks,

    Dan

    I would create a batch file to MD TEMPFILE. Because of the space between the MD and TEMPFILE, it may be regarded as 2 seperate actions. Thus Extended.
