Your code does not run without correction. Apart from

cd J:\

which will not work if such a drive does not exist, you need to change
-identif2- to -id-. But you could have checked the code yourself
before posting it. Otherwise I don't know how to respond to your
"feeling that something may not be correct".

I guess you got no answers first time you posted this because people
could not work out what you were asking.
