Use a variable set when cascading variable

You can use a variable set with an order guide.

About this task

To cascade variables requires the same variable on both the order guide and the ordered items. It can be useful to define each variable just once in a variable set, then assign the variable set to both the order guide and the individual catalog item. This approach avoids duplication and ensures the variable is the same in both locations.

To use a variable set with an order guide:

Procedure

  1. Create the variable set.
  2. In the Variable Set form, create each variable.
  3. Add the variable set to the order guide and to each catalog item involved.
    Note: The individual variables in a variable set do not appear in the Order guide or Catalog Item forms. To view the variables in a variable set, open the variable set record.
