I need to set a variable in a batch file based on the text contained in a separate file.

The value of my variable (name) is actually the text that is contained in a separate file (name.txt). The text in name.txt changes constantly, so the value cannot simply be coded into the batch.

How can I pull the two together?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

How many lines in name.txt?

"The text in name.txt changes constantly"
Is it likely that the batch script will be run whilst the file is being updated by another program?
