How to handle Subvars with slashes in automation?

Content

Hi -

I have a subvar advancement process, however it's failing on updating subvars with slashes in them when passed to Maxl from the shell.

For instance when passing a quotes string this works:

alter system add variable CurrentWeek "05/21/17";

However, this doesn't work:

alter system add variable CurrentWeek 05/21/17;

Since I have variable that require the quotes, how do I alter my maxl so it can handle both cases? I dont have a problem writing and if statement in my shell script that checks to if a value contains slashes and then formats those values differently for import.

Howdy, Stranger!
