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?
