Using dictionaries

Hi,

Can't understand why you're doing complicated when something simple can
work.
You don't need to use a dictionnary to do this.
If a simple way like this does not work for you, there's something I did not
get from your post.
--- configuration.py (start)---
...
Val1 = 1
Val2 = 'myserver'
Valn = 500
...
--- configuration.py (end)---
--- main.py (start) ---
...
from configuration import *
...
xyz = Val1 + Valn
...
--- main.py (end) ---
