Scheduling and Integrating Processes with AutoMap : Preparing Projects, Stationery, and Source Files : Setting ePublisher AutoMap Preferences : Automatic Scanning for Conditions and Variables
 
Automatic Scanning for Conditions and Variables
When ePublisher AutoMap displays windows that list conditions and variables, you can specify whether ePublisher AutoMap automatically scans the source documents for updated conditions and variables. Since your source documents may not have new conditions or variables, ePublisher AutoMap attempts to save time by default and it does not automatically scan for new conditions and variables. You can click Scan Documents on a window to have ePublisher AutoMap scan your source documents and update the window contents.
If you want ePublisher AutoMap to always display updated condition and variable values, select the Always scan for variables and conditions option. Depending on the number and size of files included in the job, each scan may require several minutes before ePublisher AutoMap can display the conditions and variables windows.
To enable automatic scanning
1. Start ePublisher AutoMap.
2. On the Edit menu, click Preferences.
3. On the General tab, select Always scan for variables and conditions.
4. Click OK to save your preferences.
