Configuring Global Variables Help Instructions Incorrect

Question asked by Ken Lux on Nov 13, 2013

From the SW 2013 Help File:

 

Global Variables in Configurations

You can configure global variables.

In a design table, the column header for controlling the value of a global variable uses this syntax:

$VALUE@global_variable_name@EQUATIONS

The column header is not case sensitive.

 

Following these instructions while using $VALUE@OD1@EQUATIONS results in the following error:

 

"Column Heading ''$VALUE@OD1@EQUATIONS'' contains and invalid feature name ''EQUATIONS''

 

This is on a very simple part. The variable are defined, so equations should be a valid object as it shows up in the design tree.
