testing and looking for hours into Google, I need your help.
The task is very, very easy but for me a general problem. I have a database und will fill a website with different data. What i've done is to test from the commandline:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" imacros://run/?m=imDPDtracing.iim -var_P 0123456789.

The macro is tested and works properly - except the value for P is not recognized:

PROMPT "The value of P is {{P}}"

Value for P is shown as undefined.

Thanks in advance

Re: Variables

Hi Thomas,

It's not possible to pass a variable value to iMacros for Firefox using the command line.

That syntax is only supported by the commercial iMacros browser (iMacros.exe) and iMacros for IE (iMacros.Sidebar.exe). ... e_Switches
