    I want to setup a batch file to copy a file from my
    desktop to my laptop over a wireless network. How do I
    setup the parameters to address the network definition for
    my laptop?

    copy C:\WINDOWS\Applic~1\SpamBa~1\*.db \\Laptop\Mydocu~1

    is the command that doesn't seem to work....

    Assuming your laptop machine name is "Laptop" and the
    folder being shared is shared as "Stuff", then the command
    to copy would be:

    xcopy C:\WINDOWS\Applic~1\SpamBa~1\*.db \\Laptop\Stuff

    (your destination is not the actual folder name "My Share"
    or's the name you are sharing the folder as,
    or 'share name')
