Hi everyone, 

Could you please help me debug the following issue with using merchandising and context vars in the processing rule? 

We are passing one conversion variable (evar63) as a merchandising var in the s.products:

s.products = “Category; SKU;;;event85=1;evar63=’id_1’"

ON the same s.t() call, we are passing the current date via context variable ('currdate'):

s.contextData["currdate"] = new Date().toMMDDYYYYString();

Then, we would like to overwrite the original value of evar63 with the concatenated values of evar63 and context data (currdate). The processing rule is:

- If evar63 is Set, then  Overwrite value of evar63 To Concatenated Value of evar63, currdate(Context Data) using a pipe (|) delimiter.

Unfortunately, this setup didn't work and we are still getting the original, not concatenated values in the evar63 report.

I was confused because the Help section mentioned, 'The product string, referrer, and user agent cannot be changed' (http://microsite.omniture.com/t2/help/en_US/reference/processing_rules_about.html). 

Is merchandising evar should be considered a part of product string and can NOT be altered? The Customer Care rep assured it can be since it is available in the drop-down menu of the processing rule. 

Did anyone tried to use merchandising var and context data in the same processing rule?

Thank you!
