Tag each column with different COLTYPEs so that the program knows how to handle the columns when generating the document. The value 'DESIGN' is mandatory; however, the VIEWTAGs are optional.

COLTYPE is a mandatory parameter in column A that is used to tag columns in the template so that the program knows how to handle them. The corresponding keyword to tag rows in row 1 is ROWTYPE. The template columns and rows can be tagged so that they are always hidden from the end-user. Additionally, other columns and rows can be tagged so they are automatically hidden, or visible, when the end-user generates the document and thereafter, the end-user can view/hide these by using the ribbon.

<VIEWTAG>

All other columns (except the DESIGN columns) can be tagged with VIEWTAGS to automatically hide/show rows and columns in the document. A default state can be set, and thereafter, the end-user can hide/show tagged rows and columns by using the check boxes in the ribbon. The tag ID specified in the VIEWTAG parameter should be entered in the COLTYPE row.
