Multiple Choice and MultiChoice Variables

   Multiple Choice variables and MultiChoice *star* variables are two tools used in Pathagoras for Word to provide quick options from which the end user can choose a proper answer. Using the tools provided in Pathagoras for Excel, you can do away with most of those variables in Word.

   As a practical matter, however, not everything can be (or needs to be) collected using Excel forms. To the extent that you can eliminate making the choices in a 'complex' Word variable, you should. Just use a  a simple variable in your Word documents, and make the 'hard' or 'complex' decisions using Excel tools (if/then choices; lookup tables, etc.) Of course, if Excel is not otherwise feeding them, you can still keep other complex variables within Word.
