Typically when you merge a document from Xplan it will output with a filename like “reportout-9733.doc”.
The syntax here allows you to control the filename output so you can make them human friendly and related to the content in them:
<:=$flags(‘output_by_syntax’, value=[‘name of your document’], parent_value=[‘used for zip files’]):>
In the above example the merge report would generate named “name of your document.doc”
This is where you define the file name of your output.
While there are some limits (see below) generally any string based data can be used as the output name.
When you are running bulk merges or including attachments in a merge report, the zip file that generates will adopt the name here. When no zip files are present in the merge this parameter has no impact.
