Hi Everyone,
I have a Windows batch file in a command task that calls a VBScript. It is working when I run the batch file manually, but when I run it through the command task, it doesnít work. It just keeps running and does not stop.

Hereís my batch file (cmdSendEmail.bat):

C:\PowerCenter_Scripts\sendmai lattachment.vbs

And hereís my VBScript (sendmailattachment.vbs):
Dim objOutl
Set objOutl = CreateObject("Outlook.App lication")
Set objMailItem = objOutl.CreateItem(olMailItem)
'comment the next line if you do not want to see the outlook window
strEmailAddr = "[email protected] "
objMailItem.Recipients.Add strEmailAddr
objMailItem.Subject = "Test Email from PowerCenter"
objMailItem.Body = "Hi, this is only a test."
objMailItem.Attachments.Add "C:\PowerCenter_Output_Fi les\file.csv"
Set objMailItem = nothing
Set objOutl = nothing

Hope you guys could help me. Iíve been clueless for days.
