Substitution Parameters in Element Relative Display

Hi all,

I am in the process of creating an Element Relative Display. The display needs to point to attributes at different levels within the AF structure. I understand that it is possible to use a relative path (E..\..\[Element Name]|[Attribute Name]) to point display objects to different levels within the AF structure. Could anybody confirm if there is also a way to use substitution parameters (e.g., %Element%)?


Below is an example of what I'm trying to do.


AF Structure

Element A

Element B

- Element A (Note: There is no relationship between this and the other instance of Element A, they are just named the same thing.)

-- Attribute1


ProcessBook ERD

Element of Interest is: Element A (at the root level)


In this example, my question would be: how do I point an element relative display object to Attribute 1 underneath the second instance of Element A? I've tried using E..\Element B\%Element%|Attribute1, but it did not work.


Appreciate any insights people can share
