I am trying to use a variable in a Post. In the example below I need to cycle a series of tickers (500) to replace the GOOG. What would be the best way of doing this, without having to use a list file with the 500 unique post payloads?

Thanks

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlso...soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/20...chema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/20...dy><GetResponse xmlns="http://tempuri.org/"...gInpt><req><wgt wID="40"><inpt><sym>GOOG</sym></inpt></wgt></req></GetResponse></soap:Body></soap:Envelope>

It is not obligatory to initialize a variable from a list, you can use another functions, for instance, $Seq. With the help of this function you can get a unique value for each user.

How do you insert the $Seq variable into the post data? I tried several differnt times, and was not able to get the variable to passed in.

So if this is my post data, how do you properly insert the variable? Also where where do you set the variable? In the attachement I am trying to add the $sym variable to the poast data like this:
Attached File  WAPT.jpg   49.39KB   16 downloads

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"><soap:Body><GetResponse xmlns="http://tempuri.org/"><pgInpt></pgInpt><req><wgt wID="40"><inpt><sym>$Sym</sym></inpt></wgt></req></GetResponse></soap:Body></soap:Envelope>

but that does not work. Can you provide instructions on how to do this?
Thanks
