I am trying to pass an argument to a BAT file thru VB Shell function. argument text value looks like this say
As you noticed there's an '&' as text in it. However & is reserved in BAT so I am trying to make it work but so far unsuccessful.
My VB 6 code is
Dim passwd passwd = "Hello^&123" retval = Shell("C:\test.bat " & passwd, vbNormalFocus)
I have tried following combinations but none work. So I am clueless what value should I set to variable passwd in VB 6 that will accept Hello&123 as correct text parameter in BAT.
Errors I receive
passwd = "Hello^&123"
Hello '123' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
passwd = """Hello^&123"""
passwd = "Hello&&123"
However none of the above are useful as I want %1 to be exactly as Hello&123
Any further help will be great.
The batch file just now simply has echo command.
@echo off echo %1 pause
