Macro Enhancement

Is there a way that the macro script could read values from a file rather than embedded in the link?

I have several sites where I can obtain a list of valid values from a catalog or index (or drop down HTML item) but the list is extremely long .... I would love to be able to identify a file name (and path) and have each items on its own line within the file ... left justified and ending with cr/lf

Example:

Instead of {:1,3,4,6,7,11,13,14,16,22,33,56,99,100} have

{:c:\values.txt} where values.txt has

1
3
4
6
7
11
etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

OK. The next version will have the following Macro:

{:file=c:\file.txt}

Thanks Oleg!

Please be sure to let me know (via this message thread is OK) whenever you release the version with this new macro support item!

Thanks again!
