The DOS file command (for BAT files, is: MOV fileName destinationFileLocation)

The fileName must contain absolute file path or logical file path. Same with DestinationFileLocation.

Can you make it simple and have the 7 folders as direct sub folders of the folder containing the 10 files? Can they be named 1 through 7?
Can the files be named 1 through 10?

A nested 'for' loop will do what you want.
I'd use 'copy' and delete the master file after checking the 7 folders but a delete line could be added to the batch file at the end.

Direcotries will be there only, we don't have to create directories. and name also are different.
i treied move command and copy command. i am able to copy it if i give full path like "D:\batch\doc" but i don't want to use path because i may be run this file from different places.

my directory is batch(path is not fixed that is it will be may be C drive D drive). so inside batch folder there sub folder's and and files.
I want to move that files into that subfolders.

I have attached sample dir structure.

Hello,

You can use ./ in the path for the current path.
For example ./doc is the doc directory in the current path.
You can use ../for the parent directory (one directory back in the tree).
