Yes, you can put multiple quotations in a single parameter for a batch file.

Quotations also be started and ended anywhere in the paramter.

Here are some examples on using quotations in a single parameter:

C:\fyicenter>Parameter-Cleaned.bat "\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14"
(Parameter-Cleaned.bat)
("\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14") () () () ()
("\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14")
(\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14)

C:\fyicenter>Parameter-Cleaned.bat \Pro"gram Fi"les\Microsoft" "Office\"Office"14
(Parameter-Cleaned.bat)
(\Pro"gram Fi"les\Microsoft" "Office\"Office"14) () () () ()
(\Pro"gram Fi"les\Microsoft" "Office\"Office"14)
(\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14)

C:\fyicenter>dir /b \Pro"gram Fi"les\Microsoft" "Office\"Office"14
