  2. Select a variable and then:
    • Click the Properties button to display its properties.


    • Right-click and then click Properties.


    • Double-click the Variable.

  3. Make your changes.

    Note: The variable name may only contain the characters 0-9, a-z, A-Z and _ (underscore). The name cannot include a pipe (|) or semi colon (;). These characters are reserved for use in the command line syntax.

  4. Click OK to save the changes to the Variable.
