If you wish your replacement text to include a 'spelled out' equivalent of a fraction, precede the number with

<Fr>

<FR> or

<fr>

(the case of the text indicates the case of the replacement.

Examples:

Variable (in document and                    Replacement Text
on left side of IDB Screen) __________(right side of IDB Screen)

[Contingency Fee]

<FR>1/3

[Distribution]

<fr>1/4

Results:

Document text:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of [Contingency Fee] of the total amount recovered

will become:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of ONE-THIRD (1/3)  of the total amount recovered.

Document text:

John Doe shall be entitled to [distribution] of my estate.

will become:

John Doe shall be entitled to one-quarter (1/4) of my estate.

 

lightbulbsmallYou can 'pre-place' the <Fr> markers in your source documents. (Indeed, you are more likely to do this than manually type the markers into your Instant Database screen.) Just place the markers to the immediate left of the actual variable in the source text

    Example:

Document text:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of <FR>[Contingency] of the total amount recovered

If, when you display the IDB screen and type in 1/3 beside the variable [Contingency], the text will become:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of ONE-THIRD (1/3)  of the total amount recovered.
