The Header section in a CST macro script should consist of information regarding the intended use for the script and other relevant information. It consists of three tags, namely, MACRO-DESCRIPTION, END-MACRO-DESCRIPTION and START-SCRIPT. The first line in a script should be the MACRO-DESCRIPTION tag. Text entered between this tag and the END-MACRO-DESCRIPTION tag is the Macro Description and will appear in the bottom window of the Macro Wizard as shown below. On the next line from the END-MACRO-DESCRIPTION tag, the START-SCRIPT tag should be entered. This designates the start of the script code.
