ExtendScript of the Week: Import and Export Variables

As part of the series ‘ExtendScript of the week’, we are providing an ExtendScript to export a list of User Variables in a FrameMaker Book. The list will also show the status that whether the user variables is used or not. After the list has been generated, you can modify the definition of the user variables in the table and the table can be imported back to the book. This will help modifying and deleting user variables at the book level.
