SET /p LabelName= <FileName.txt
GOTO %LabelName%

Change "LabelName" and "FileName" to whatever applies to you.

It doesn't need to be from the first line however.

Using this code, you will be able to have multiple load points within one file.

SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion

FOR /f "tokens=*" %%a IN ('FINDSTR LabelName "P:\a\t\h\FileName.txt"') DO  (
	SET Variable=%%a
GOTO %Variable%

Both will work, but this one will allow to have just one file.

Nevermind, that code won't work. It require you to know the load point, before it loads. IE it doesn't do what you want it to.

I couldn't edit as I'm on my iPhone, and it won't let me hehe.
