A year ago, I worked for a company doing .NET to create a customer report. They use DevExpress to generate a report based on customers' requirements. However, I realized the way it works is just painful and very time-consuming, because everytime they changed the requirement, we have to change a layout a bit due the the font and text data. At that time, I knew nothing a Latex, but I always think there must be a way to work smarter.
Today, while playing with TikZ package, I realized that Latex is just like another programming language, it's super powerful and flexible in term of drawing figure, positioning text, etc... But I'm not sure if we can use a variable inside Latex or not, for example, if I created a layout, says:
x^2 + 2x = A
Then is it possible for
A to be a
variable so that every time I need to pull out a new data from Database, I can just fit them in that particular position. I've just learned Latex for couple months, so there are many things that are new to me. In advance, I apologize if my question sounds a little insane or nonsense. Lastly, thank you for your time reading.
