Solved batch to read password from txt file

November 25, 2011 at 08:22:06
Specs: Windows 7
I have username and password in txt file-one string.I have batch that run application that require username and password.I want that batch supply username/password from txt file,in variable form:

sqlplus "username/password" -argument

So i want that instead "username/password" put variable which will read data from txt file:

sqlplus @variable -argument.

I need this because we need to change password every month,and because we need to run more instances of this app (every have it's own batch),i want to change password only once in txt file,not in every batch files

Thanks in advance

✔ Best Answer
I can post the following sample code you may embed jnto your scripts.

First of all create the userid/password file, just one line, according to the format you need e.g if username/password then List.txt will store BobCat/X123YH.


set /P ID_PSW=< "List.txt"
sqlplus "%ID_PSW%" -argument

and you are done.
