    • Click the Select button next to the Option Name field to select an option to add to the macro.

      The Select Option dialog box displays an alphabetized list of names of standard category options and descriptions. If you want to add an option that is not in the standard category, use the Category list to select a category.

      See About DHCP Macros for more information about macro categories.

    • Type Include if you want to include a reference to an existing macro in the new macro.
