Batch File reading text file issue

for /f "usebackq tokens=*" %%x in (ptest.csv) do ( 
echo Starting WinSCP
winscp.com /log=C:\Logs\winscp.log /ini=nul /command ^
    "open sftp://xxx:xxx@ftp.somewhere.com/ -hostkey=""ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 256 blah blah=""" ^
    "lcd ""C:\Images""" ^
    "cd ""/BBIMAGES/LINKS_SPRIDENID""" ^
    "get %%x.JPG" ^
    "exit"
echo WinSCP finished
)

Above is the batch file I am using to open a text file and read each line into a variable. I am then taking the variable adding .jpg to the name and pulling it down form the server. This works, but I am logging in for each new line in the text file. Is there a way I can put the credential in once and the loop through the file until complete?

Re: Batch File reading text file issue

Generate WinSCP script in your loop (append new get command in each iteration), and execute WinSCP only once at the end.
