Hi julevine, welcome to the forum

If you search this new and old Forums using keywords like “a2cmd”; “Command Line Scanner” ' “CLS” etc you will find a lot of discussions

Below are few threads you can read in this Forum.

you can look through subsequent links as well

and inside there is a reference to

… etc. you will find a lot of examples including VB scripts in the old forum

There are definitely examples of what you are searching for for.

Setting parameters for scanning folder/file are included in the referred threads

but if you need more info, please don't hesitate to ask

My regards
