Creating Tables in Document Factory

After you are familiar with commands, keywords, and creating Document Factory templates, you may want to include more complex formatting, such as tables. Tables provide a neat, efficient way to display your output data. You can add tables to your templates to include tables in your Document Factory documents.

  1. Open a template in Microsoft Word.
  2. Use the following syntax:
    $BEGIN_ROW
    $SORT{Hierarchy}
    $FILTER{Filter:JustCreatedFilter}
    $END_ROW
    
    Name Type Description
    $BEGIN_ROW
    $SORT{Hierarchy}
    <<Name>>
    
    <<Type>>
    <<Description>>
    $END_ROW

    To Create eSignatures in Document Factory, use the following syntax:

    $BEGIN_SIGN_ROW
    <<Signature_Date>>
    <<Signature_Time>>
    <<First_Name>>
    <<Last_Name>>
    
    <<Title>>
    <<Meaning>>
    
    $END_SIGN_ROW
    <<Comment>>
    Note: Do not use $BEGIN_SIGNATURE within the table format in Document Factory. Use $BEGIN_SIGN_ROW instead.
  3. The resulting document is a table with as many rows as the requirements. Each row has the name, type and description columns for each requirement.
    Note: $END_ROW must be in the last line of the bottom-right most cell. A table with multiple rows per requirement is supported. Syntax is shown in the following table .
    column 1 column 2 column 3
    $BEGIN_ROW
    $SORT{Hierarchy}
    <<Name>>
    <<Type>>
    <<Description>>
    <<Hierarchy>>
    <<Priority>>
    <<ID_Number>>
    $END_ROW
    
    Note: You can use tables to print requirement and its attributes. You can also print signatures in a table.
