Here is the scenario...
I have a document that is largely based on set analysis by alternate state.
To help identify the different states in charts, I would like to assign different colors to the different states but it needs to be consistent across charts and tabs.
So I thought I would define a variable to store the color with the state value of each variable being the color for the chart.
In other words. I have an input box assigned to State1 and a variable called vColor. I entered a value of 'Blue' in the input box.
I then create a text object with the Alternate state set to State1 and the text =(vColor) it will display 'Blue'
however I want to leave the state of the chart as Default and then define the state as part of the expression so I can repeat the same expression multiple times in the same chart for different states.
