how do we create parameter file for batch script?

i have FILE X with list of values for A,B,C as 1,2,3. i have FILE Y where i use these values A,B, and C wherever required in FILE B. it should get the value of A,B,C from FILE X and show as 1,2,3 respectively.

please let me know if i can be more clear !

You can call another batch, or read one.

e.g.

filex.cmd

@echo off
set A=1
set B=2
set C=3

Open in new window



filey.cmd
@echo off
call filex.cmd
echo Now they are %a% %b% %c%

Open in new window


or you can read contents of a file, e.g.

filex.txt
A,1
B,2
C,3

Open in new window


@Echo off
for /f "tokens=1,2 delims=," %%a in ('type filex.txt') do set %%a=%%b
echo %a%, %b%, %c%

Open in new window


That should read filex.txt and for each line use the first bit before , as the variable name and the bit after the , as the value dynamically.

Is that what you are after?

If your "file x" is indeed has indeed the content as "1,2,3", you can import this into a batch file like this:
@echo off
setlocal
set ValueFile=x.txt
for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=," %%a in ('type "%ValueFile%"') do (
	set A=%%a
	set B=%%b
	set C=%%c
)
echo A: '%A%', A: '%B%', C: '%C%'

Open in new window

If not, please provide a concrete sample.
