:devil: this should have worked
for /f %%A in (acct.lst) do call :process %%A:processnet user %1 | find "The user name could not be found"set LEGITUSER=%ERRORLEVEL%if {%LEGITUSER%}=={0} @echo net user %1 password

but the errorlevel returned is always 1 when run in a batch file, even though from the command line it returns 0/1 depending if found. :thumbsdown:
