:lol: ok sorry
But my English is not developed
I try to more explain

I have 20 applications with different name on a server
My test doing : download, unzip, install and run the application one after another.

The name and number of application can changed daily.
The name of applications are a variable in my test and insert manually in a simple data table

I will, when i run my test, it search and listed the name of applications, and use in my test like variable

You undestand ?
My questions : it is possible ? And how ?

I think you should read following documentation ... sting.html
For your issue you need a Data-Driven-Test and in this documentation will be explained how you have to do it with Ranorex.
