Programmatic creation of a new Batch

If during an export script I check my database and find that a record already exists I will not want to save it. I will instead want to write that document (PDF) to a different Batch job called DocumentExceptionBatch.  How do I create the Batch programmatically and move documents into it?

Any assistance is appreciated.

    Here a code snippet I'm using from another activity. It's not finished(you can tell by the comments in it) but it should get you on the right path for creating one in your script.

    'Created at the beginning of a class declaration
    Private RepositoryId As Guid = Guid.Empty

            Public Sub New(RepositoryId As Guid)
                Me.RepositoryId = RepositoryId
            End Sub
            'some Class code follows to the end of the class
    'End of class

    'Use in your custom subroutine
            Dim gdb As New GrooperDb(RepositoryId)
            If (gdb.Connect(GrooperDb.ConnectOptions.ConnectOnly) = False) Then Return Nothing

            Dim root As GrooperRoot = gdb.Root
            'Dim batch As Batch = root.NewChild(GetType(Batch))
            Dim bch As Batch = root.BatchProcessing.Batches.Production.NewChild(GetType(Batch))

            'Perform your custom work here

            'Assign a batch process and starting step
                Dim bchProcess As BatchProcess = gdb.Root.BatchProcessing.Processes.Published("Name of batch process")
                Dim processStep As BatchProcessStep = bchProcess.Steps(0)
                bch.ApplyBatchProcess(bchProcess, processStep)
                bch.Status = GrooperDb.ProcessingStatus.Ready

            'Set batch status to Processing
             bch.Status = GrooperDb.ProcessingStatus.Ready
            'Save batch to database and kick off process

    'End of subroutine
