@order @package @product
Applies to: 4.3 NeoPackProfessional, PackBuilder
This article assumes the reader has a good understanding of ordering in Version 4. It is highly recommended at least the following articles are consulted prior to this one.
For a given subject placing @order on a layout will list all package codes in all orders for that subject
Three package codes are scanned for a particular subject - PK1, PK2 and PK3. These packages each contain a single product - an 8"x10", 5"x7" and a 4"x5" layout respectively. Subsequently another order is placed for the same subject - PK6, a sheet of wallets.
Placing a text box with @order on any layout for this subject even if that layout is not ordered will display:
[PK1] / [PK2] / [PK3] / [PK6]
The fact that @order can be used on any layout for the subject makes it useful for printing products such as packing slips. A packing slip layout with @order need not be included in any package but simply be 'ordered' for a subject in Point and Click Mode. The paacking slip will list all packages in all orders for the subject.
Placing @package on a layout will display the package code and package description as defined in tsAdministrator that resolved into this layout.
Continuing the example above, package PK2 has a description (or name or title) of Package 2. Placing @package on the 5"x7" layout will display:
[PK2] Package 2
To display just the package code, [PK2] use @packagecode.
To display just the package description use either of @packagetitle, @packagename or @packagedescription.
Placing @product on a layout will display the product code and product description as defined in tsAdministrator
Continuing the example above, package PK3 includes a product that is the 4"x5" layout. In tsAdministrator this product has a code of 45 and a description of 4x5-normal. Placing @product on the 4"x5" layout will display:
To display just the product code,  use @productecode.
To display just the product description use either of @producttitle, @productname or @productdescription.
