How to run a Qbasic program from windows xp?

I loaded a file called olddos.exe on my Windows XP computer. I created a Qbasic program for balancing my checkbook. Program works great, but I can't figure out how to create a batch file that will open the .bas file and start it running. I'm able to create a shortcut to the program I wrote, but then I have to tell it to run. I would prefer to click on a batch file and start the program from the shortcut. At this point I am not even sure if a batch file is what I really need to execute this qbasic program from a shortcut in the Quick Launch bar. Any help will be appreciated. thanks

I messed with this a little and decided to just turn it into an EXE.

Thanks Mechanix2Go for your response. I actually found another Qbasic program that works just fine and appears to be more recent. It is called qb64. It runs basically the same as my olddos.exe program, but looks cleaner and a bigger window to work in. How would I convert a .bas to a .exe? I'll Google it and see if I can find that. thanks again.
