Hi,
I have a script in vb which returns 1 or 0 and this script is called in a dos file .bat.
Is it possible to get the value returned in my script.*
Thanks.

I precise my problem
in my script I have a data which its value is 0 or 1 like this

CODE

Wscript.Echo  "Appel script"
Dim data
data=1
Wscript.Echo  "data: " & data
(it is a very simply example!)

and in my file .bat:

CODE

echo 'appel vbscript variable2 wihch returns 1 or 0'
cscript variable2.vbs
and I want to get the value of data.
I don't known if a vbscript can return a value.
Maybe I can use the standartd output ?

Thanks.

Hi,

What about:

CODE

WScript.Quit(data)

The value used by Quit is the error code that would work with the command line given by PHV
