[SOLVED]Defining global variable in External file

Hi,
I have multiple Report caster schedules (~50 )where I have to use a common disclaimer message with more than 256 characters.
I defined a Global variable (&&DISCLM) in edasprof.prf file and assign Disclaimer message to it. Further I used it in RC schedules in Distribution tab->Send all the reports as attachments.
The mails are being distributed with the Disclaimer message as expected.

What I am trying to do is to define the global variable in a external file instead of in edasprof.prf file and use it in RC schedules.
Is there any way to achieve this? Please advise.

Many Thanks.

Hi Shankar,

In edasprof you can use -READ to read from an external file and to set the value for &&DISCLM.

You can created a disclaimer.fex and -INCLUDE it in the reports or alternatively, run it as a pre-execution procedure when you schedule the job.
