  2. Go to 'Tools'.

  3. Go to 'Variables'.

  4. In the resulting window, select the 'Add' button.

  5. Now, give the variable a name in the 'Name:' field.

  6. In the main editing window, enter the information you which to pass (eg. an address).

  7. Use these steps again to make a variable for each piece of information you which to pass (eg. one for an address, one for a zip code, etc.).
