I think CSV Dataset won't work because config items are only executed
once the test starts, by which time it is too late.

Function calls such as CSVRead and StringFromFile should work, as they
are processed when the field is read.

JMeter properties can be defined on the command-line or in the file.

These are more suitable for this case, where you only need one lot of
data. The functions and CSVDataset are really intended for providing
multiple sets of data during a run.

Check the FAQ on the Wiki.
