Open file using batch script

I have a linux application that generates text data tables that we study with JMP.  I'd like to be able to open these files in JMP with a hotkey.

 

I was thinking of writing the filename to a standard location, then using a batch script to open the file in the currently-running JMP.

 

I've tried a batch file with this:

 

FOR /F "tokens=*" %%I IN (\\server\path\to\file\with\path\to\text\file\to\open) DO @"C:\Program Files\SAS\JMP\12\jmp.exe" %%I

pause

 

... but the batch script launches a new instance of JMP.  Is there a way to open the text file in the currently-running JMP application?

Re: Open file using batch script

Found the answer:  add "/shellopen" between the jmp.exe and the %%I.

 

Hope this helps someone.
