    Hey guys,

    Hope I'm not posting into the wrong section. I think I have something very simple that i'm having a lot of trouble with. I have a text file called "file.txt"

    It contains:
    TagString=V3,SCC-COM,WXF1A20V0556,WXE1A2071007,PREBI
    TagString=V3,SCC-COM,WXK1A1045668,WXG1A30F3909,POSTBI
    TagString=V3,SCC-COM,WMAYP0002467,WMAYP0002769,BI

    I want to run a batch file that'll parse the 1st & 2nd token.

    So:

    for /f "tokens=3,4,5 delims=," %i in (file.txt) do @echo %i %j %k
    why won't this work?

    Thanks.
