Paste Variables

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have been working with ME for the past few days. I am new to all of this and so far have been able to get a few things to work and save some time automating my business. However, I need to to understand something regarding variables. I don't know if I even need to use them but I am doing some testing. I have put a small macro together that sets two variables, T1 and T2.

 

T1 is the shipping address for a customer order and T2 is their email address. I want to take these items and paste them into my shipping software using the variables that were assigned. Is this possible or am I missing the bigger picture when it comes to variables. I would of assumed that there would be a paste variable command somewhere. For the life of me I can't find it. I think I am missing the big picture.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Easy, once you know how. In the Scripting Editor, choose "Text Type." Then wrap a variable name in percent signs. The resulting script will look something like this:

 

// Insert T1 - Shipping Address

Text Type: %T1%

// Tab to the next field...

Text Type: {Tab}

// Insert T2 - Email Address

Text Type: %T2%
