Thanks. That works fine.

This worked fine.

I diodnt need to because the .BAT file was in a directory which is
part of the PAHT list.  By the way, I had to include a beginning
line of @ECHO OFF in the bat file.

I'm struggling to find documentation or installing and using org-id.
I added the line (require 'org-id) to my .eamcs file
then discovered a variable to customise the method to internal
or to use an external command uuidgen which doesnt exist on Windows.

How do I change the name of the external command from uuidgent
to nextnum

This shouldnt be a problem as I am the only user.

Thanks for your help,
