Getting values into a batch file

GeneralMayheMGeneralMayheM Posts: 1Member
I am processing text files using a batch file to create a master text file. During the process I would like to do a simply calculation.

My problem is that I do not know how to read a value into a batch file from an external file.

Any help would be GA!

    You exit the program with an exit code. Then you have to test the errorlevel of the program in the batch file. Batch file don't have variables so this is usually problematic and kludgy at best but it can be done.
