Solved how to get output from two for loops?

Hi all,
I have the following input.txt file:

The aim of the batch file I want is to give me:

tr min;JohnLoeffler
te min;TimWalter
and the my batch file is:

setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

for /f "tokens=1,2,3* delims=;" %%a in (E:\input.txt) do (

for /f " tokens=* delims= " %%a in (E:\input.txt) do (
call :sub1 %%a

echo %1 %2

echo.%1 %2; %%b;!RESULT!>>output.txt


however the output I get is:
tr min; %b;
te min; %b;
note that I need that current.tok for using in further function I want to use and the second for loop is for dropping equal sign in te=min and tr=min. now I don't know how to work with these two for loops to have the correct mentioned output.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advace,

✔ Best Answer
for /f "tokens=1,* delims==" %%A in (input.txt) do (
	echo %%A %%B>>output.txt
        for /f "tokens=2* delims=;" %%C in ("%%B") do (
                echo %%C>current.tok

No need to make it so complicated ;)
I am assuming you wanted the current.tok for later use, however if you only needed it to parse the string to remove the = sign, you can remove the for loop inside the first one.

Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)
