Resetting variables

softwareguru I have certain brandable variables that MUST be filled in when someone brands one of my ebooks. Seeing as not all users are savvy enough to know what "REQUIRED" means, I figured I would simple use an "*.as" script on ebook start to check to see if certain variables include any data and if not, I need to "SET" a value for that variable.

This results in a "SET - "VARIABLE" has been set at compile time" error.

Without renaming every required variable, var1a to var1b... var2a to var2b and so on, is there anyway to UNset or REset a variable upon startup so that I can then SET a predetermined value for those variables which the person branding it failed to set?

Because parts of my ebook require certain variables to be filled in, in order to function properly, I currently have my book set to close and display a message if certain variables are blank, but this can still be confusing for the end user, so I am finding out, lol.

Anyone know if "un" or "re" setting certain variables is a possibility? Again, NOT having to rename variables is preferred.
