Variable does not work in alternate state?

Hi,

In my qvw (attached), I have one field only (cob_date) with some dates.

I created three sheets, and assigned one alternate state for each sheet. 

I created a variable vCob_Date=Only(cob_date)

In each sheet, I have one multi box for user to choose a cob_date, then I put two text boxes, one boxes shows the value of the vCob_date variable, the other one shows the value of formula '='only(Cob_date)=' & only(cob_date)'. It looks like the formula box shows the correct value when I select a date in  the multi box, however the variable box never shows anything.

Does it mean that alternate state does not work for variables? 

 

thanks,

Michael

hi 

you need to change your variable : 

delete the '=' equal sign so the variable should only have only(cob_data)

than change the text box to :='vCob_Date=' & $(vCob_date)

the reason because '=' in variable means the expression is calculated at model level and the variable hold a value
