I searched in the forum and didn't find the solution for this:

I am building several EPCs of many products with similar structure. The thing that mostly changes among them is the name of the product, meanwhile the functions actions remain very similar to each other.

For example, I have a functions sequence of "download product A", then "open product A", then "change product A characteristcs".
In another EPC, I would have the same sequence, except the name of the product: "download product B", then "open product B", then "change product B characteristics".

Is there any way of creating a variable connected to a free text-box, or any attribute, and inserting this variable within the function's name?

In the cases quoted above, the functions sequence would be the same for both products: "download 'variable'", then "open 'variable'", then "change 'variable' characteristics". Moreover, within the EPCs I would have a different text inside a free text-box or attribute for each EPC, either "product A" or "product B", connected to the variable inside the function's names.

I am a new user in ARIS, so if you don't know also how to make this and have any tutorial that would help me developing that I would appreciate a lot!!! 

OR, another solution that would work is making a macro that substitutes all the text inside an EPC for another text. So I would create lots of EPCs with a generic name and then ru the macro for each one.
