Global Variables, Design Tables and Configurations

So here's what I'm trying to do: I have some equation driven curves in my model. The coefficients of the equation are linked to global variables. These coefficients are functions of some linked dimensions. Now, I want to have different configurations for different values of a particular global varaible i.e. I want to control a variable via a design table. I do this with $VALUE@variable_name@equations. I can control the parameter successfully using this method. But what's weird is that it pretty much erases entire equations and replaces them with static values i.e.

 

Lets say the parameter that I'm trying to control is 'Prebend'. and the coefficients of the equation in the equation driven curves are functions of this variable. i.e. I have my table set up like this:

 

Prebend=4mm

CoefficienA=f(Prebend)

CoefficientB=g(Prebend)

 

Config 1 has prebend 4, and config 2 has prebend 5. If I create this table in config 1, I get the above. Now If I switch to config 2, I get:

 

Prebend=5mm

CoefficientA=f(4mm)=constant

CoefficeintB=f(4mm)=constant

 

What am I doing wrong here?
