Is it possible to have a Task in AM9 change the value of a constant?

Hi WilliamWatkins,

Like variables, constants are used to represent data in a task. However, unlike variables, constants maintain the same value from task to task and the value cannot be modified from or within a running task. Constants are local to each machine.
