Field codes: DocVariable field

The DocVariable field code inserts the string assigned to a document variable. Each document has a collection of variables, which can be added and referenced by the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications programming language. This field provides a way to display the contents of the document variables in the document.

Note: For more information about document variables, search for the Variables property in Visual Basic for Applications Help. If Help is not installed, run Setup again to install it.

Syntax

When you view the DocVariable field code in your document, the syntax looks like this:

{ DOCVARIABLE "Name" }

Note:  A field code tells the field what to show. Field results are what is shown in the document after having evaluated the field code. To toggle between viewing the field code and the field code results, press Alt+F9.
