I have read the documentation and STILL have questions.
First YES I have al the documents needed and the signing keys
Do I append the the .bat file i used to compile the BAR file?
OR do I make a new .bat file once I have the BAR file?
sorry for all the questions but a large group of people have been excluded here: DESIGNERS who are comfortable working within FLASH PRO we have to jump through to many hoops to get the app.
Will there be a publish button from Flash Pro? otherwise you will loose a large market. I can too easily publish for android and ios !!!

I'll take a crack at this if you provide a little more information. To compile and sign, you don't have to use a .bat file at all. The necessary commands can be entered directly into the command line console. Given that you apparently have a .bat file that you used to compile, where did it come from?
The direct answer to your question is that .bat files, if used, have the sole purpose of executing on your computer. You never submit them to the Blackberry server.
I'm sure your read this page:
Try going through it again. Also, there are several threads here specifically related to signing.
If you give more specific information about what you have done so far (do you have a .p12 file, a .csk file, have you registered with the signing server) and what you need to do next I or others will be better able to help. Or you could redirect your question to an existing thread. Good luck,

Thank you for a reply. Not to be rude but did you read line 2 of my post. YES again I have all the files/documents needed for signing.
I produced the .bat file vs having to repeatedly type in the cmd line
So again I have read all the documentation and i posted here because I had additional questions
Do append the exsiting .bat file for the signing?
or do I make a new .bat file for each step once I have the BAR file ?
This may seem like a nobrainer to a developer but I am a designer trying to complete the last steps if anyone is willing to help
Thanks in advance

No. If you already have a .bar file you don't need to repackage it at every step.
Although you didn't care to say, I take it that you already have a .csk file created in the appropriate folder on your computer.
If you have not registered with the RIM signing authority, you need a new .bat file that executes this command, appropriately filled in:
blackberry-signer -register -csjpin <PIN> -cskpass <csk password from step 1> <CSJ_file>
You need two signings, so a .bat file for each.
The first gets RIM to sign:
blackberry-signer -verbose -cskpass <your CSK password> -keystore <your P12 file> -storepass <your P12 file password> <BAR_file.bar> RDK
The second signs with your author's .p12 certificate:
blackberry-signer -keystore <your P12 file> -storepass <your p12 file password> <BAR_file.bar> author
