The "SYS_PUBLISH_xx" variables can be used in the Publishing Profile object actions and the command line code.
- SYS_PUBLISH_FILENAME: provides the output filename and file type.
- SYS_PUBLISH_FOLDER: provides the path to the publishing folder for the output file.
The variables are used to create a "generic" action that can be applied when publishing a variety of books or outputs. The variable option is "generic" because it enables you to create an action that doesn't point to a specific book or folder.
Example: A move action pointing to a specific book
When an action is added to a Publishing Profile that points to a specific book, the action will only be completed if it can find the file you have defined. In this example the file needed is the X3001 User Guide.chm (when you point to a specific book you must also define the output format).
Example: A move action using a variable
As an alternative, you can create a "generic" action that is applied to any book. In this example the variable <SYS_PUBLISH_FILENAME> has been used (the output format is not defined when you use the variable).
