wish help you to fix your issue @aschipfl - that worked! for the comment.
Simply adding "/b" to the copy line fixed the issue.
code :
copy /-y /b

hope this fix your issue I am trying to write a batch file to copy a large number of files. I want to be able to take the file and move it to a specific folder based on its file name.
code :
for /R C:\ %%f in (*.xyz) do (
   if not exist D:%%~Pf%%~Nf md D:%%~Pf%%~Nf
   copy %%f D:%%~Pf%%~Nf/%%~NXf
)
%%~D Expands to a Drive letter only.
%%~P Expands to a Path only, including an ending backslash.
%%~N Expands to the Name only.
%%~X Expands to the eXtension only.
XCOPY C:\ D:\ /T

I think the issue was by ths following , I have a cli application that doesn't like the usage of wildcards. In this example the usage of *.dat. I just get an error that the file *.dat is not valid. , You can use a for loop:
code :
for %%x in (*.dat) do mycommand "%%x"
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set Count=0
set List=
for %%x in (*.dat) do (
  set List=!List! "%%x"
  set /a Count+=1
  if !Count! GEQ 50 (
    mycommand !List!
    set List=
    set Count=0
  )
)

With these it helps Have you tried SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION, and then using "!" around the variables instead of "%"?

seems to work fine I have this batch file to copy and rename a file on a public directory to another public directory. The file is normally about 1600kb in size but copied only has 1kb. If I change the wildcard in the name to the real name I get the whole file copied. Problem is the file name changes after every update e.g. Name 3.25.13, Name 4.12.13 e.t.c so I have to use a wildcard unless there is any other way you can tell me, which will be very much appreciated. Here is the code for the batch: , You can use a dir /o:-d to get the newest matching file.
code :
cd /d "U:\Sourcing\Vendor Demand Planning\Master CPFR\"

for /f "delims=" %%I in ('dir /b /o:-d "Master CPFR*.xlsx"') do (
    copy "%%I" "..\Pricing Project\Master CPFR.xlsx"
    exit /b
)
