Creating a Fixed Table Component

You create a Fixed Table component from within Component Studio when you want to use a Selection variable to present your template users with a list of options to choose from in your interview.

To create a Fixed Table component

  1. Open Component Studio.
  2. In the ribbon, click New and from the drop-down menu select Fixed Table.
  3. Type the name you want to give the Fixed Table; then click OK.
  4. In the Columns tab create columns for your Fixed Table component by typing a Name for each column, and choosing the Type of data the column can display.
  5. Select the Row ID check box for the column you want to use as an answer value for a Single Select variable, and to guarantee that each row contains unique data.

You can choose one or more keys. If you choose a single key, then HotDocs can add the data for that column as an answer for a Single Select variable. If you choose multiple keys, then you must use the name of the Single Select variable with the dot operator to indicate the cell in the row you want HotDocs to use as an answer value.

  1. (Optional) Use the Notes tab to add a note to the Fixed Table component.
  2. When you finish, click Save.
