Customizing Variable Settings in Projects
In a project, you can use the variable values defined in your source document. You can also change the value of any variable in your source document in a project. Changing the value of a variable in a project does not change or affect the value of the variable in your source document. You can use the value of the variable you defined in your project when you generate output. Before you can work with variables in projects, you must insert variables in your source documents. For more information about variables and inserting variables and conditions in your source documents, see “Using Variables in FrameMaker” on page 109 and “Using Variables in Word” on page 204.
