Thanks Phil for your reply, but unfortunately it does not fix my issue.

The thing is that I want to use a "local/global" that will be set to some users' specific folder on their local machine. So everyone could copy the script on their machine and test/use the scripts without having to open it and modify the local path.

For example my script will do the following:

local ScriptsFolder "c:\Temp\Stata\"
use "`ScriptsFolder'\data\SomeData.dta", clear
do "`ScriptsFolder'\SomeScript.do"
...

The thing is that I cannot pass arguments to Stata has I'm using it through RemoteApp (therefore I'm calling Stata using a .rdp shortcut on my deskptop).

Thanks anyway.
I guess I will have to find another solution, like replacing the value of the local ScriptsFolder manually or automatically via a custom script.

Regards,

JFM

You can certainly do this with ssh (i.e., send environment vars to the server, provided it is configured to support this), but unfortunately I don't know anything about Windows.  However, why not simply use a profile.do file on the server (see [GSW] C.3)?
