  2. Type your new variable name in the field.
  3. To change the name of a variable or any of its attributes, double-click the value and then select or enter a new value in the field that appears.

    The icon to the left of the name reflects the data type of the variable.

  4. To reorder the variable list, select a row and then drag the row to its new location.

    When you select a row to move it, the pointer icon changes to an up/down arrow icon (Up/down arrow icon).

  5. To reuse a variable from another activity, drag it from the Custom tab in the palette and drop it onto the Input heading at the top of the variable list.
