So far I have:



@echo off

set RESULT_FILE="result.txt"

set /p "var1=Enter the String to Find: "



pushd %~p0

type NUL > %RESULT_FILE%.tmp

for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir /B /S *.txt') do (

   for /f "tokens=3 delims=:" %%c in ('find /i /c "%var1%" "%%a"') do (

       for /f "tokens=*" %%f in ('find /i "%var1%" "%%a"') do if %%c neq 0 echo %%f

   )

) >> "%RESULT_FILE%".tmp

move %RESULT_FILE%.tmp %RESULT_FILE% >nul 2>&1



:: Open the file

"%RESULT_FILE%"

popd



I want to actually SAVE the file rather than open it, and I want the filename to be "searchterm.txt"

Also, I have a list of search terms. I could make a bat file for each, I suppose. Or could "Enter string to find" allow several terms?

Thank you.
