Running Multiple Batch Wizard Jobs
(tick_24Pro, cross_24Std, cross_24Lite)

If you have a large website and need to divide processing up into multiple jobs or you just want to run multiple Batch Wizard jobs, then you can do so using the command line processor (cmdlineprocessor.exe).

Overview

The technique is to create a command file to pass to the command line processor that contains commands to process all the Batch Wizard target lists that you want to process. Create the command file (just a simple text file - call it commands.txt if you'd like) and then call "cmdlineprocessor.exe -f <filename>". To avoid potential problems, we recommend using a full path for <filename>.

The "-q" command after the "-b" command causes the validator to wait for the previous job to finish and then exit. The next "-b" command causes the validator to reload to process the next list.

Example <filename> for -f Command

-b "c:\wizard_lists\cse_batch_wizard_part1.lst"
-q
-b "c:\wizard_lists\cse_batch_wizard_part2.lst"
-q
-b "c:\wizard_lists\cse_batch_wizard_part3.lst"
-q

Notes

If you're generating reports (like when using the validator tool), then make sure each target list file specifies a different report filename in the Target List Options Tab or a job may overwrite the report of another job. The report filename in the Target List Options tab overrides the report filename in the Batch Wizard Options so that each target list can have a unique report filename.

Use double quotes around filenames to avoid problems, especially when the path or filename contains a space character.

You may want to disable the option that automatically opens the report when finished. This option is in the When Done page of the Batch Wizard Options.
