Visit Boris website Concepts - Report processing variables

Report processing variables are used to customise report processing, especially in relation to the text of e-mails and generation of file names. This means that entering “This is a report for ’ replaced with the actual customer name (eg Mr Smith) to generate the text "This is a report for Mr Smith" in the final report.

Report Processing Variables must have both a leading and trailing “%” (eg "" will NOT be correctly interpreted).

Fields which accept Report Processing Variables can accept any number of them in any order and any number of iterations. Any text which is not recognized as a Report Processing Variable is left as-is (ie ").
