Macro input fields for constants in horizontal macros

Macro input fields for constants in horizontal macros

You can use a macro input field to represent the constants that you want to use in a horizontal macro. You can also create multiple macro input fields to represent corresponding sets of constants.
When you create a macro input field, define a name for the macro input field, and then define the constants that you want to use. At run time, the macro input field expands to represent the constants and uses them in the listed order.
When you create multiple macro input fields with corresponding sets of constants, the task evaluates each set of constants in the listed order.
The following image shows a macro input field that represents constants:
The Inputs for Macro Inputs dialog box shows the selection of the Constants option. The Constants list shows that the macro input field represents the following values: 50000, 100000, and 150000.
At run time, the macro input field expands and uses the constants in the following order: 50000, 100000, 150000.
