It looks like it should work. The findstr argument looks a little off to me but I don't really use it a ton other than for standard stuff so I may be off.
If it isn't working try ending your first if statement with a bracket and then on a brand new line, just type in: if else ("code")
That shouldn't make a difference but honestly batch programming is so picky with even the littlest things sometimes that any little change could work.

no, i don't think. because /c wants an immediate argument (a literal expression):
findstr /c:"this text to find" targfile
in this case:
FINDSTR /m /c:"RC (return code) = 0" "%ddlDir%\%filenm%_Log.txt"
consult: findstr /?
for all findstr options /switches. I'll admit, they can be confusing, so... experiment!
