If you have a VBScript program which would be better utilized if you can pass one or more parameters at run time, you can easily do so by
accepting them as arguments.
Here is an example of how the program would be run from the command prompt (Separate the parameters with spaces).
filename.vbs parameter1 parameter2
Use the WScript.Arguments to retrieve the parameters that were passed.
Dim Arg, var1, var2
Set Arg = WScript.Arguments
'Parameter1, begin with index0
var1 = Arg(0)
var2 = Arg(1)
msgbox "First parameter passed was " _
& var1 & " and second parameter passed was " & var2
'Clear the objects at the end of your script.
set Arg = Nothing
You can use the approach for passing parameters in a command shell, or even a scheduled task. Passing parameters to a VBScript file allows
you to reuse your VBScript program.
