I have (and still do) use MASTER_GDL files to set value lists, and if I want just a single value then that is all I put in the value list, just a single value.
I have not tried to simply set the value of a parameter.
I guess you could if you never want it to be different.
I have in the past used the GLOB_USER_1 to 20 parameters, but these don't work as they used to, so I stopped using them.
If I need to control a parameter, then I now use the LIBRARY GLOBALS.
This way you can set a parameter for a particular reason, user can change it if need be (without having to edit a MASTER_GDL script and re-load the library), and you can even save different values in different Model View Option schemes.
Still not perfect as you have to edit each MVO scheme individually if you want them all to be the same values.
We really need a UNIVERSAL GLOBAL as I have suggested before.
