Inserting Variables into Word

You can insert a variable into a source document after you apply a Microsoft Word template that contains the variables to your source document. If you want to use a variable that is not defined in a Microsoft Word template, you must create the variable in your source document before you can insert it. For more information about creating a variable, see “Creating Variables in Word”.
