I can't seem to get the :Age option to work with Roles in shared events. For instance, a shared census with several children set as role Child. If I refer to those roles with the :Age option, it returns nothing. i.e.

<?[Child(1)]| [Child(1)], [Child(1):Age]>. would return

1st child's name, [nothing].

Is the age option not useable for Roles?


Thanks!
Brad

try using
[thisperson:age]

This works only in the sharee's sentence, I don't think you will get the age of the sharees in the primary person's sentence.

Yea that's what I'm currently using on the sharee's sentence, but, carrying on the Census example, I thought it would be nice to be able list "Others" ages, like

Also recorded in the same dwelling was:
<?[Child(1)]| [Child(1)], [Child(1):Age]>.
<?[Child(2)]| [Child(2)], [Child(2):Age]>.
<?[Child(3)]| [Child(3)], [Child(3):Age]>


Ideally, on either the Primary's or Sharee's sentence.


Thanks for the reply. :)
