Re: How to bring a special string into a variable?

OK. I see "^" must be before a variable.

Re: How to bring a special string into a variable?

Thank you.

Very strange.
I have exactly repeated what I have done in post 1. And now the behaviour is different (without using "^" ):

Code: Select all

C:\Users\D>set "a=%BUFFER:*Word=%"

C:\Users\D>echo "%a%"
"%BUFFER:*Word=%"

C:\Users\D>

Re: How to get all characters after a substring

Actually my second example should almost work out of the box ... Unfortunately the second example from post <14 Feb 2021 17:57> seems not to work: C:\Users\D>for /f "tokens=2*" %a in ('reg query "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.docx\UserChoice" /v "ProgID"') do @fo...
