The Encodian population engine supports the creation of variables which are useful where you would prefer to perform a compute expensive operation once and use the output multiple times within the same file.

Token Format

A variable can be declared using the following format:

<<var [Type Name = Value]>>

The Type property is optional, if the Type is not specified the engine will automatically determine and assign the Type.

For example:

<<var [variable1 = "Encodian"]>>

Once a variable has been declared it be used within the file as required using standard syntax, for example:


A variable value can be re-assigned (updated) as follows:

<<var [variable1 = "New Value"]>>

Example File: Encodian - Template Syntax - Variables.xlsx

This generates the following output:
