How to get two or more commands together into a batch file


I want to enter a command in command prompt after reaching a specific location. How can I achieve this?


set PathName="X:\Web Content Mgmt\Completed Filtering\2013_Folder"
set comd="dir /b /s *.zip"
start "cmd" cd /d %PathName%

I am opening the command prompt and giving it a path using PathName. Now after reaching that specific path I want to insert the comd variable into the command prompt to get the desired result.

These are the specific commands I am trying to execute in the batch file:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

X:\Web Content Mgmt\Completed Filtering\2013_Folder
X:\Web Content Mgmt\Completed Filtering\2013_Folder> dir /b /s *.zip > C:\Users\anoopn\Desktop\abc.csv

You can use the following command. The SET will set the input from the user console to the variable comment and then you can use that variable using %comment%

SET /P comment=Comment: 
echo %comment%
