Yehnfikm8Gq Posted February 18, 2010 Report Share Posted February 18, 2010 (edited) I was wondering how corporate users (or anyone else!) handled data entry where many items have to be collected. Single "Variable Set String at Prompt" repeated is not a great interface. Perhaps the usual is to set up a form in another application such as Excel? A text file set up similar to an ini file where the user fills in the "key values"? I use "Variable Set String at Prompt" with "/" as a separator between items - the "menu" is in the Prompt. Perhaps the "field" names could be preset in the dialog and you overtype. Is a multiple variable input form something ME is lacking? (edit) As soon as I posted I thought I had a great idea. Set input string first, Variable Set String %T% to: First Name: Family Name: Apt No: Street Address: District: Town/City: County: State/Province: Then set T1 with Prompt and the above would be the preset. You could fill in the information and process the variable to extract entries. The bummer was that the Variable Set String with Prompt is only a single line. You cannot resize to show multiple lines. I'll make that a Feature Request to ISS. Edited February 18, 2010 by JohnS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
