Thanks for responding so quickly! I will try using the forward slashes in
Production. It may take a few days because I don't have direct access to
the Production environment and I have to go through sort of remote hands.
The source server queries Oracle databases through shell scripts running in
a Cygwin bash shell and sends the output files to the target server which is
running SQL Server. No problem doing that interactively in Production, but
I can't do it from ssh or cron in Production and I can do it in the
non-Production environment. I cannot see any differences between the two
