Project Constants

As you develop your report, you can incorporate flags that represent project-wide terms and values. The flags - or Project Constants - are replaced with the actual text during document compilation. Using this facility, you can use a particular text string or number extensively throughout your RTF documentation, whilst maintaining the value in a single location. You define Project Constants on the Generate Documentation dialog; they are then available to be inserted into any custom RTF report template in the text, section headers, end-notes, page headers or page footers, using the Document Template Designer context menu.
