The event log does not contain any entries.

No matter what I put into the batch file, the only thing that is shown
in Column "Output" is the text: C:\WINDOWS\System32>F:\Daten\Munnin\PostgreSQL\pgagent
"There" refers to selecting pgAdminIII>myDatabase>Jobs>myJob>Steps(1)>MyStep
and then activating the Statistics tab.
Not sure if that is what you meant by "job step output".

But while doing some further tests, I found the mistake I made. I have
splitted the backup batch file into several batch files. And when I
tested it in the console the CWD was correct. However, when the main
batch file is called from pgAgent the CWD is different and the batch
files called from the main one are not found.

Maybe adding a hint in the documentation will help others users in the
future not to fall into this pitfall.

Anyway, thanks for the response.
