MainView SRM reads it during system startup. The suffix that is specified in SMMSYSxx indicates which version of SMVARSxx the active MainView SRM configuration should use.
SMVARSxx variables allow a user-specified name to be assigned any number of selection parameters. The variable name is then specified in any other MainView SRM selection statement or Automation command.
