    [Note] Note

    Note regarding syntax:

    If it is a table variable or a table constant, then the syntax is $VARNAME. In addition, there is the point of the file extension, thus two points in total.

    If an environment variable is used, then the syntax is $(ENVNAME). This does not need a point, thus one point in total.

    [Note] Note

    Even several document columns can be specified. For this enter them separated by comma under Variables containing external references and under Document to open, the document paths or respective variables separated by comma again. The first two entries belong together, the second two, etc.
