workflow variable not getting parsed through batch process to knime sql statement

Hi,
I tried to run a process from my command line in batch mode to run a process that contains a SQL statement that uses a flow variable but every time I run it saying workflow variable is not used. please enter the SQL statement. But I already specified in my knime process the statement. Can anybody please help me with this.

Thanks in advance

Attaching the knime process and error message for reference.

the command i wrote on my command line is:
“C:\Program Files\KNIME\knime.exe” -consoleLog -nosplash -nosave -reset -application org.knime.product.KNIME_BATCH_APPLICATION -workflow.variable=“startDate”,“"1989-09-21"”,String -workflowDir=“C:\Users\hp\knime-workspace\scheduler2”

Hi @ovazquez

It is not recommended by KNIME anymore to use those.
