About Variables

Variables are used for brief, non-formatted pieces of content (such as the name of your company's product or your company's phone number) that you need to use in your project over and over. They're especially good for text that might change frequently, such as version numbers and dates. Variables are stored in variable sets, which can hold multiple variables.

There are different kinds of variables: (1) basic ones, (2) custom date/time variables, (3) system variables (e.g., date and time; titles; page count; Chapter, Section, and Volume numbers), (4) Heading variables, and (5) Running Head variables. Some of these are especially useful for page headers and footers.
