Text Element Variable display only user input values no All values

Hi All

we are using 3.5 version of web templates and one of the requirements is to display variables in text element web items.

I am wondering if there is a way to display only input variable values and hide variables with "Empty Demarcation"

since we use more than 30 variables the list is too long and onlymax of 10 variables have values, the rest are all empty

Is there a way to display only those 10 values in the text element web item

Please advise

    I think this is possible.

    In WAD goto the Text element Properties and select List of Text Elements. There you can select the Variable from the Drop Down and specify the variable name for all the variables that you want to dispaly. I am not very sure whether directly variable name is used or used with ampersand(i.e. either var1 or &var1&).

    Hope this helps.

      Hi Rakesh

      Thanks for your response but we really are not sure which variable will be entered by the user

      say we have variables for sales org, division, doc number, etc (30 of them in the list)

      if they enter values for only for sales org variable, we want only that to be in text element

      we don't want variables with empty demarcation for division and doc number to be displayed in text element!
