Place the insertion cursor in the plan where you need to assign a value to a symbol.
Silk Test Classic closes the Testplan Detail dialog box and enters the symbol definitions, including the $ character, into the plan. If a symbol is defined at a level in the plan where it can be shared by a group of tests, each test can assign its own local value to the symbol, overriding whatever value it had at the higher level. You can tell whether a symbol is locally assigned by using the Testplan Detail dialog box: Locally assigned symbols display in black. Symbols that inherit their values display in blue.
