Job and order parameters can be set using global variables. A simple example would be:
where the global variable
$ODAT represents a date and has been set as described in the How to create global variables page. Substituting a job parameter or order parameter in this way would allow, for example, a booking date to be set for a financial transaction although the transaction is actually processed at a later time.
The following is a more complex example showing the substitution of global variables in a job:
Substitution of global variables in an order can be carried out in a similar manner.
