I extrapolate from your error message that your batch file has a hyphen
command line syntax:
sas -optionname optionvalue -optionname2 value2
when sysin is in the number one position it does not have to be named
sas -center -sysin rpt
can be written shorter as:
sas rpt -center
your error message says the command-line was:
sas -rpt.sas -select
