check file completion before next command

KlausEngelKlausEngel Posts: 3Member
I am a very beginner to DOS:
I need to write a batch program that copies a large text file between server for which I am using the xcopy command. In addition I need to place a second file that serves as a 'trigger' file in the destination directory as soon as the first file has been copied over completely.
Is there a way check if the first file copy has been completed? Any help would be appreciated.
