Specifying parameters for actions

In specifying the parameters of an action, remember that, in general, any context that accepts an immediate value of a particular standard data type also accepts any entity of the same data type. For example, if an input field accepts a string value, then it also accepts an expression that evaluates to a string, a value that converts to a string, a string variable, or a call to an imported method that returns a string (see Equivalents).

However, there are a few fields in which you cannot use variables (see Using the value that the variable holds).

For information about specifying actions using the VME, see Working with actions, and using the AME, see Actions tab.
