How to pass multiple parameters?Helpful Member!

I need to call a remote batch file from VBScript. I try to use this:

Set MyShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

The program I need to call is

Program.bat -a "USD_WS" -ref "42" -sf "xxx" -sfns "yyyy" -u "id" -desc "description zzz"

How should I write this line? I don't know the format.

Thanks a lot.

A trick I use....

1.  take the command that works for you
2.  paste into into a word editor (notepad)
3.  do a search and replace of quotes " with 2 of them ""
4.  then add quotes before and after your entire line should get you in the ball park

New question: now if I want to pass in one of parameter a variable, what's the format? I tried the following but got a "parameter" as the value, not "headline".


Dim parameter
parameter = "headline"
Log (parameter)

scmd="C:\Temp\get_parameters.bat -a ""USD_WS"" -ref parameter -sf ""xxx"" -sfns ""yyyy"" -u ""id"" -desc ""description zzz"""
Set MyShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
MyShell.Run scmd

scmd="C:\Temp\get_parameters.bat -a ""USD_WS"" -ref " & parameter & " -sf ""xxx"" -sfns ""yyyy"" -u ""id"" -desc ""description zzz"""

Hope This Helps, PH.
