Batch script 'host not found'

I'm having a problem - I'm trying to connect to my server in a batch script, using the line:
call "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" open sftp://username:password@myserver.com    
but I keep getting 'Host not found' returned in the console. However, once the terminal goes to winscp> I am able to copy and paste directly
open sftp://username:password@myserver.com    
and it connects successfully. Why is this only failing when calling from a batch script? Or am I doing something wrong?

Any help is appreciated. I posted this initially in the wrong forum, sorry for that!

I manage to solve this, I was being stupid - I needed to use the /script command with a list of options in an external text file. I'm not sure why I was trying what I did, but in any case, this works!
