Variables common to several scripts

4 posts in this topic

I would like to have a text file or something similar that contains some variables that will be used in several scripts (First name, Last name, etc.). When I run any of these scripts, I would like it to load the variables that are currently saved in the text file. This will prevent me from having to type the same information more than once.

A related question, what's the best way to call a script from within a script (ex: If example.xls is closed, Then run openexamplefile.exe (which opens the file, types the password..etc))?

All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

You're right...ini's are the best way to go. I made a script which asks me all the questions I need for my other scripts (what is the first name?) and save the answers to an ini. The other scripts then read the ini.
