Inserting Variables into FrameMaker
You can insert a variable into a source document after you import the variables into your source document. If you want to use a variable that is not defined in an Adobe FrameMaker template, you must create the variable in your source document before you can insert it. For more information about importing or creating variables, see “Importing or Creating Variables in FrameMaker”.
The following procedure provides an example of how to insert variables in Adobe FrameMaker source documents using unstructured Adobe FrameMaker 7.2. Steps for inserting variables in Adobe FrameMaker may be different in other versions of Adobe FrameMaker.
