I have a layout that has 8 variable Images on it. On these variable Images I need to overprint a @username@ at different places on the 8 different images. The expression I have is "IF(CONTAINS([Coverletter#], "106491"), [Username],""). Where, if the Variable form name includes 106491 then it will print the [Username]. If I change the Expression for username in another location, to reference another for, it will change the expression for all the [Username[] locations. Is there a way to make these independent of each other, so I can have 8 different locations for this variable?

Hi DShank,

The problem is that you use the same variable at all locations. You could create 8 different variables named:
@username1@
@username2@
@username3@
etc...
Set them to all use the [username] database field. That way, you can apply your expressions as stated in your post to show [username] in 8 different conditions. To create a new variable, simply type
@username1@ in a text box, then edit the expression to create your conditions. Hope this helps.

Regards,

Olivier
