Notes

Accessing Non-Repeating Data

{text-data:text}{text-data}
 
{get-data:text}{get-data}

Accessing Group-Data

{group-data:group} 
 {text-data:text}{text-data} 
{group-data} 

{get-data:group.text}{get-data} 

Accessing Table-Data or Repeating-Data

{table-data:table} 
 || Table || 
 | {text-data:text}{text-data} | 
{table-data} 

{repeating-data:repeat} 
 {text-data:text1}{text-data} 
{repeating-data} 

{get-data:table.0.text}To access first row of table.text{get-data} 

{get-data:repeat.1.text1}To access second row of repeat.text{get-data} 

Unlike Report Info, this macro can tell when it is inside a scaffolding Table Data or Repeating Data macro and will access locally-stored properties within the repeating section.
