    Do you know of anyone who has made GLAV variables dependent on other GLAV?  For example: The GLAV 3 values that are valid/available to be assigned to a transaction depend on which GLAV 2 value the user has selected? Do you have suggestions on the best way to accomplish this? TIA!

    Hi Rebecca,

    You can block certain combinations of GLAVs using validation rules, but we do not have dependent GLAVs like you would Dependent Picklists.
