As stated in my question XI mapping TEXT the answer is to make use of the CopyValue, which works.
However, I now have to condition this to a IF THEN ELSE in other words if the TEXT from above does not exist then use another variable which again is conditioned. It appears that the IF THEN ELSE is not working as I cannot produce a Target element when making a selection from the ELSE condition.
I have tried changing contexts, added removecontexts etc. but this still isn't working
Any advice would be appreciated.
