Foor book-level variables control, I *strongly* recommend the BookVars plugin by Leximation! I use this all the time for my documents - it is the best add-on I have for FrameMaker.
Please see www.leximation.com for the details. Z -----Original Message----- Hi all, I am new to this group, and pretty new to FrameMaker (but I was a Word 2003 guru, so that helps a bit...). My question is ... I am taking over somebody else's document, who is no longer around. Amongst other things, I also have to update the document date and version number. I found the list of variable definitions that controls this values (in Word you also have variables, but also you have fields ... whatever), and so in Master pages mode for the title page, I updated those variables' values. When I returned to Body pages for the title page, I saw indeed that the values have been correctly updated. However, when I look at the headers/footers of other chapters (documents), I see that the old values are still there. For sure, I can then do the same thing in each chapter, but is not the variables scope supposed to be global, i.e., thoughout the book? Tia - avi
