Macro variables

Macro variables are variables created in the Visual Macro Editor or the Advanced Macro Editor. Macro variables are internal to macros. They are not used outside of macros. Macro variables are created, stored, and used by the macro engine, and listed in the macro script. For more information about macro variables, see the chapter, Variables and imported Java™ classes, in the ZIETrans Advanced Macro Guide.

In the source of a ZIETrans macro (.hma) file that uses ZIETrans prompts and extracts for global variables, the prompts and extracts are contained in the source file before the macro script. The macro script syntax is enclosed by the <HAScript> and </HAScript> tags.
