Hi Experts,

How do I set the value of %SYSTEMROOT% to a VBA Variable?

I want WRK_APP_STD_INSTALL_DRIVE_001  to be the value of  %SYSTEMROOT%

The following code produces the Error 'Syntax Error'.

Dim WRK_APP_STD_INSTALL_DRIVE_001 As String
WRK_APP_STD_INSTALL_DRIVE_001 = %SYSTEMROOT%

Thanks,
Bob C.
