I'm writing a batch file to join together a bunch of processes triggered by batch files... When everything works its great, but my error handling sucks. I've tried using the %ERRORLEVEL% variable to crudely trap my errors, but my outer calling batch file never goes into error:



The output I end up with is:



Obviously the Batch2.bat file is erroring - but the error is not being passed back. Is there a way around this?
