Macro variables

Unlike global variables, macro variables are used and stored within macros in the HCL ZIETrans .hma source file. The macro editors can be used to create macro variables. To create macro variables using the VME, see Variables and Types tab, and using the AME, see Variables tab. The macro variables are created, stored, and used by the macro engine, and listed in the macro script.

In an HCL ZIETrans macro (.hma) file source using HCL ZIETrans prompts and extracts for global variables, the prompts and extracts appear in the file before the macro script syntax. The macro script, which contains the macro variables, is enclosed by the begin <HAScript> and the end </HAScript> tags.
