Using windows batch file to run search on CLI

Hi,

I was trying to use window batch file to run CLI search command.

The command is something like this:
splunk search "index=xx |eval xx| table xx xx xx" -output csv c:\test.csv

This cmd like works when I manually key in on cmd prompt, but when I saved the file as a batch files or *.cmd, the command will only run : splunk search "index=xx

I know the pipe in cmd needs to be escaped using caret (^|). However, it is not working even when I added the caret.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have anything in your batch file to login as a Splunk user before running this command?

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!
