In multiple UFT tests I have been declaring a variable "system" and assigning it a value system = "host1" , then later in the test script performing various Select Case system Case "host1" to do different things based on the value. Then I use Test Batch Runner to execute these tests (about 70+) and want to pass a single argument "system" to each of the tests, without having to edit my scripts every where I set the value – but dont know how to do this.

One method is to use a global variable (MyVar, for example) in a .vbs file.

Create global variable to hold the test value in a .vbs file.
example:
Dim MyVar
Set MyVar=''ABC.XYZ''

See HP document KM196956 or KM171372 for more details.

You could store information in the data sheet (xls) and import the data table on start of test.

Use the ''Environment'' object. This pulls from the machines environment variables.

Example:
' Action1
Environment(''myvar'')= ''VBScript Is Fun!''
' Action2
MyArray = Environment(''myvar'')

Use a Dictionary object. The Dictionary object can be used as an alternative to using environment variables when sharing values between Actions. The Dictionary object allows the user to assign values to variables that are accessible from all Actions (local and external) in the test in which the Dictionary object is created.

Last you could use Action and Test parameters.
