|On a daily basis, there is a list of error of phone numbers generated that I have to check on. The list is remote printers that we send data to that get turned off, run out of paper, etc. |
By the time I get the list, it is several hours old, and many of the machines have been turned back on. The list of phone numbers is different every day.
What I want to do is create a batch file that will dial the numbers on my list one by one so I can just hear what the line does, maybe pause so I can note it down, then go on to the next number. I've looked for programs off the shelf for this, but they tend to be more involved than I need.
Ideally, I would like the phone numbers to be in a seperate file that could be generated daily.
It has been so long since I've written a batch file though, that 1/2 the commands seem to have left my brain! Help!
So far, I have:
REM Argument to pull phone number
echo Dialing %1
echo ATDT 9%1;COM1 REM 9 to dial out
echo Press any key to disconnect
REM argument to go back to top and pull next number.
Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
