Is it possible to make a child alternative into a base alternative?Problem ID#: 64157
It is not possible to do this directly. However, it is possible to mergedata from a child alternative into the alternative above it in the tree.This is done using the Merge icon in the Alternatives manager. To usethis, select the child alternative, and select the Merge icon.
You will get a message that says:"This action will move all records from 'child alternative' into 'basealternative' and remove 'child alternative'. Are you sure you want tomerge 'child alternative'."This means that the data in the current child alternative will beapplied to the alternative above it. Note that it is not possibleto use the Merge function when if with alternative is being used by thecurrent scenario. To merge the alternative change the scenario. You will also want to be very careful in removingalternatives because they may be used in other scenarios as well.
