you mean like resolving %appdata% or %path% from a command line or something like that?
yes, assuming you've enabled xp_cmdshell;



create table #Results (
ID int identity(1,1) NOT NULL,
TheOutput varchar(1000))

insert into #Results (TheOutput)
exec master..xp_cmdshell 'echo %path%'

select * from #Results
/*
ID TheOutput
