Redirectin Fastload errors in Windows

When I run Fastload in a Windows environment, I get a lot of error message spooled to the screen.

Log messages are spooled to the output file.

I am running FastLoad as follows:
fastload < myscript.fl > mylog.log

I get these type of messages in mylog.log:
**** 12:52:54 Field too large in vartext data record: 8388127, field: PAGENAME

And stuff like this (the bad records) scroll up the screen:

According to the manual, in Unix, you can set an error out file. Is there a way to do this in Windows?

Thanks,

Re: Redirectin Fastload errors in Windows

Well, I found the asnwer myself (though not in any TD documentation).

Apparetnly you can specify 2 output files as follows:

fastload < my_script.fl > my_output.log 2> my_error.txt
