Anyone know how to seperate variables in a single string. The red designates the spot the command needs to go but I can't get it to work.

ie. IF /I "%USER_INPUT%"=="1"^"ONE" GOTO ONE

Why not

IF /I "%USER_INPUT%"=="1" GOTO ONE
IF /I "%USER_INPUT%"=="ONE" GOTO ONE

I want it all on one string, because I'm picky. Plus I can then assign an entire section of commands in just one IF statement. That is actually how it is right now but it makes the code bloated since I have like 7 menus and 7*3=21 possible inputs.

ie.
running say this:
Code:
IF "%RUNNING_LOOP%"=="1"[color=red]^[/color]"ONE" (
		SET /A RUNNING_LOOP=%RUNNING_LOOP%+1
		ECHO %USER_INPUT% is not a valid response
		)
compared to this:
Code:
IF "%RUNNING_LOOP%"=="ONE" (
		SET /A RUNNING_LOOP=%RUNNING_LOOP%+1
		ECHO %USER_INPUT% is not a valid response
		)
IF "%RUNNING_LOOP%"=="1" (
		SET /A RUNNING_LOOP=%RUNNING_LOOP%+1
		ECHO %USER_INPUT% is not a valid response
		)
Another way I could get around doing this is assigning somewhere for the IF statement to GOTO and then just make them common, but after a while of doing this the hierarchy turns into absolute hell.

Code:
IF "%RUNNING_LOOP%"=="ONE" GOTO START
IF "%RUNNING_LOOP%"=="1" GOTO START
:START
	SET /A RUNNING_LOOP=%RUNNING_LOOP%+1
	ECHO %USER_INPUT% is not a valid response

:LINE2

:LINE3

:LINE4
	ECHO Think of a few pages of these lines and you see what I mean by hell.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
