If you mean by SQL code please see below:


declare @string varchar(max),
            @path varchar(255)

set @path = '"c:\\\\Development\\\\temp\"'
SET @string = '"Win32_Directory.Name=\' + @path

print (@string);

If you need this at the OS level in CMD or batch file you should use parameters like %1, %2, ...
So in the batch or command file would be something like:



"Win32_Directory.Name="%1

Where %1 = \"c:\\\\Development\\\\temp\""

OK, so you have two options in my opinion - if you have the WQL query you can modify it as I mentioned above with the sql example using variables or if you have it in SSIS task you can add task parameter/value:
