|# This script was created to convert a directory full|
|# of markdown files into rst equivalents. It uses|
|# pandoc to do the conversion.|
|# 1. Install pandoc from http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/|
|# 2. Copy this script into the directory containing the .md files|
|# 3. Ensure that the script has execute permissions|
|# 4. Run the script|
|# By default this will keep the original .md file|
|for f in $FILES|
|echo "Converting $f to $filename.rst"|
|`pandoc $f -t rst -o $filename.rst`|
|# uncomment this line to delete the source file.|
|# rm $f|

@rachrobts Probably spaces in your filenames.
Try adding double-quotes:
`pandoc "$f" -t rst -o "docx/$filename.rst"`
