Batch file syntax file

I'm trying to create a batch file that will copy some excel files from my usb drive to my c: .

this is what I'm putting in the command line.
cd excelbak\exlbak13
copy *.* c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\excel

comment I get is invalid sytanx in command line...I'm thinking that it might be the Program files and the microsoft office that the command doesn't understand...

can someone please shed some light on this..thanks
