#1 Post by .:Xx4NG3LxX:. » 21 Feb 2020 10:31

Hello guys, I'm new in the forum, I'm 14 years old. I'm Venezuelan. I don't speak English very well but...

Ok, I would like know How to read a variable with a for.

Example:

Code: Select all

Set "abc=abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
For %%a in (::I don't know) do (::I don't know)
::More code
Thanks!

You really have not defined the scope of what you are trying to accomplish.

In the simplest form, to access the contents of a variable you reference the variable with percent symbols.

Code: Select all

Set "abc=abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
echo %abc%
If you want to read that variable with the FOR command, again just reference the variable with percent symbols.

Code: Select all

Set "abc=abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
For %%a in ("%abc%") do echo %%~a

If you are having a difficult time getting help in English, may I suggest you post your question on a technical forum that speaks your language.
