server-side command in a procedure does not run the script

Hello,

 

I experiment a strange behaviour using the server-side command within a procedure

 

I have two .bat files within the /Board/Job folder

  1. ListFiles.bat
  2. MergeFiles.bat

 

both are called at the same place in the procedure : (without any parameters passed through BOARD).

  1. The first one runs successfully (generates a text file) 
  2. The second one doesn't run. If I run it manually from windows explorer (double-click on the file), it runs successfully and merges several PDF files into one single PDF file called Merged_reports.pdf.

 

Has anyone already went through this ?

 

The content of the second .bat file is:

del ..\..\Export\Merged_reports.pdf
pdftk ..\..\Export\*.pdf cat output ..\..\Export\Merged_reports.pdf

 

The pdftk software (Link) is a free program which helps working on pdf files.

 

Many thanks for your help.
