How can I map the Married/Invalid paring among 3 or more parameter Values?

If I have 3 parameters A, B and C of Values A1, B1 and C1 and need to map a condition as

If A1 and B1 then C1 

How can I pair this combination using Married or Invalid pairs? Please suggest.

Shubham,

Thank you for your question. Please keep them coming.

In general, it is usually a bad idea to use "and" within your value names. The goal you have creates an exception to this general rule.

Here, given that you have a constraint that involves 3 parameter values, you should consider combining the A parameter values and B parameter values.

In other words, you should consider changing from a description of your inputs that currently looks like this:

A: A1, A2, A3
B: B1, B2, B3
C: C1, C2, C3 

to a description of your inputs that looks like this:

A and B: A1 and B1, A1 and B2, A1 and B3, A2 and B1, A2 and B2, A2 and B3, A3 and B1, A3 and B2, A3 and B3
C: C1, C2, C3

Then mark a Married Pair between "A1 and B1" and C1.

It seems like it would probably be a unidirectional married pair from "A1 and B1" to C1. But read the Married Pair options carefully to be sure you select the correct option.

Please let me know if that explanation is clear and/or if you have additional questions.

Thank you.
