"Varialble" DOS commands

My co-worker working on an old app and he need to make some updates to a DOS app. I haven't work with DOS in years and to avoid the learning curve I was hoping someone can assist. I need to setup a variable in DOS and looking to get some help on setting that up.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In DOS you just use the SET command to assign variables.  So:

SET var1=value1

creates or updates the environment variable var1 and gives it a value of value1.

Can you share more about what you need to assign, how it will be used, etc, that would allow us to give better guidance.
