This did not work for me. Here is what I have in place.
1) variable named process_date
2) scenario named SCEN_PROCESS_DATE (this scenario includes the variable process_date (refresh mode) and another scenario which needs to utilize the newly refreshed variable.
I need to execute the scenario SCEN_PROCESS_DATE by command line and pass in the value to refresh the variable named process_date. Although the scenario executes without error or warning, it fails to update the variable.
StartScen.bat SCEN_PROCESS_DATE 001 DEVELOPMENT 5 "-NAME=ODI_DW" "-v=5" "-EDW.process_date='3/18/2011'"
