Suppressing equations for different configurations

Can someone explain to me how to suppress equations for differentconfigurations?  I am trying to apply a multiplication factorto a sketch dimension using equations.  For example, I want D2to be 2.00 in my CONFIG1.  In CONFIG2, I want D2 to bemultiplied by my multiplication factor (X=1.5 as declared inEquations), so D2 now solves to 3.00.  However, this equationneeds to be suppressed for CONFIG1.  I cannot get thisaccomplished, and SW Help does not explain it clearly.  

I know I could just change the dimension manually for eachconfiguration, but I want to apply this same multiplication factorin several places on the part, plus I will probably have to adjustthis multiplication factor after the parts are actually bent.

Anyone have some insight for me?

Thanks,
Nick VW
