I've been working with Report Generator for several days now, but i haven't been able to figure out how to insert a variable (previously defined in the workspace) into a paragraph.
p03=Paragraph('Value is %0.5e',a);
p03=Paragraph('Value is %<a>');
Doesn't work, since it doesn't seem to work like it does when doing sprintf, and %<a> doesn't work either. Is there anyway to do so, or any easy workarounds to include a variable combined with text that doesn't involve using Paragraph? Thank you in advance.

If the value of the variable is a string or scalar, you can do the following:
p03=Paragraph(sprintf('Value is %0.5e',a));
This works because sprintf returns a string, which the Paragraph constructor wraps in a Text object and adds to the paragraph object it creates.
