Using variables in PerfectScript

A variable acts as a place holder that represents a value, which can be text, numbers, or measurements, that you can use repeatedly in a macro. You can change or manipulate this value in the macro. WordPerfect allows you to use the commands, such as Constant, Declare, Global, Indirect, Local, and Persist, to create variables with different functions and actions.

Variables are typically preceded by the letter “v”.
