BlackBerry | Using TemplatesTemplates are designed to quickly and easily perform what-if analysis. All templates are similar in design. Each row consists of a label describing the variable (to the left) and the variable itself (to the right).

VariablesThere are four kinds of variables: numbers, dates, lists and tables. Numbers-]
To enter a number, type on the keypad. Enter numbers using the following keys:
0-9: use the designated number keys [0..9]
decimal separator: period [.] or comma [,]
negative sign: minus [-], plus [+], exclamation point [!], question mark [?], or at symbol [@]
exponential notation: E [num+E or cap+E]
Enter dates using standard BlackBerry methods. One option is to select each region (day, month, year) with a trackball click or ALT and scroll with the trackball or clickwheel. A secon option is to highlight each region and change it with the keypad (numbers for day, year; letters for month). Lists
Select the list with a menu selection, trackball click, space key or ALT and choose a new option. In most cases, typing a letter will go to the next occurrence starting with that letter. Tables
To enter a table, select it with a menu selection, trackball click, space key or ALT. Each table column will be designated with a header indicating the contents of that column. Each table cell is a number variable. Follow its directions above for entering numbers.
