Don't process embedded variables

When using a variable in the FTP edit field, this option ignores any % signs found within the variable value and will not attempt to treat the % signs as an embedded variable. It will just expand the % sign as a standard character during macro runtime.




Assume for example a variable of %T[1]% with a value of ftp://ftp.macros.com/abc%23%/macexp.exe.


1. With this option selected, the macro will initiate the FTP transfer from ftp://ftp.macros.com/abc%23%/macexp.exe.


2. If the option is not selected, then the macro will assume that there is a variable of %23% and look to expand its value.

  a. If the variable %23% does not exist, then the macro will generate an error because it could not find the value for this variable.

  b. Otherwise it will expand the value of %23% within the main variable.
