I need some advice on the use of output as a verb.
To put it in context, I am working on a desktop app that uses some of the functionality of MS Word. In the app, there is an element called a binding that obtains a specific piece of data from the database and displays it in a document after you use it. As an example, this is a binding that displays a company's name:
Once I execute it, it gives me the actual name of my company – the one that is specified in a specific location in the database.
And the question is: is it OK to use the verb output as a synonym for retrieving and displaying data in this case?
An example would be the sentence "To output a company's name in an MS Word document, you need to do use the following binding". Another example could be "To output the number of employees in your MS Word report, you need to do the following".
I'll be thankful for any feedback.
