Help with spline work

I am very new to unreal. I want to try an move a 2d sprite back and forth. I looked around and saw that you can do this with splines some how. I found this tutorial linked below but am really lost. Does any one have an example i could look at? or a suggestion on something else i should try.

I am currently trying to follow this example: A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements and Releases - Unreal Engine Forums

I had trouble getting this to work as well, this Simple Spline Character Patrolling, the Guy dosen’t tell you what the blue Patrol Variable
Type is. So I don’t know if its the spline variable or another variable type, but the end result of putting down that code
was my Character mesh dissapeared from its capsule.
