The strings resource allows you to update all occurrences of a string in one step instead of changing the same string in each place it occurs.
For example, to change all occurrences of the words “Customer Name” to “Client Name,” you could select the Customer Name string and change it to Client Name instead of changing each individual prompt, text value or window name.
Note that changing a string with the Modifier will change it only in the interface. The string won’t be changed in any reports. To change strings in reports, you must use the Report Writer.
