HOW TO USE MERGE FIELDS

To insert data from your BIA into a Microsoft Word document, you need to use the following codes. Instructions on how to use each code is included below, with an example available to download in the link in Step 1 above.

How to insert a structured table of data, with multiple columns and rows
${chunk-processes-sequence}
${chunk-workplaces-sequence}
${chunk-dependencies-sequence}
${chunk-applications-sequence}
${chunk-people-sequence}
In your word document, create and format a table that has at least one row and one column.

Before the table, enter the appropriate code that relates to the data you would like to insert into the table:

${chunk-processes-sequence}
Inside the first column of the table, insert the following code ( ${iterable-row} ) followed by the first data variable you would like to insert into the first column. For example:

${iterable-row}${title}
Insert as many variables you would like in other columns of the same row. After the end of the table, insert the following closing statement (note: it is the exact same code to start, but with a “/” at the beginning of the code).

${/chunk-processes-sequence}
Refer to the downloadable template as an example.
How to insert unstructured, repeatable blocks data
${chunk-processes-loop}
${chunk-workplaces-loop}
${chunk-dependencies-loop}
${chunk-applications-loop}
${chunk-people-loop}
The follow codes allow you to enter a set of data into a word document without using a table.

To start the area where you would like to insert data, use the opening code relating to the set of data you would like to insert.

${chunk-processes-loop}
Format and insert variables into the word document in any way you see fit.

Refer to the variables available below.

Mark the end of the block of data, insert the following closing statement (note: it is the exact same code to start, but with a “/” at the beginning of the code).

${/chunk-processes-loop}
Refer to the downloadable template as an example.

HOW TO USE VARIABLES
