Use a variable set

You can use a variable set with an order guide.

About this task

Cascading variables require that the same variable be on both the order guide and the ordered items. It can be useful to define each variable 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 that 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.
