Global Variable not working as expected across all Topics

Posted on by 4

I am using a Global Variable to extract a State across several Topics. In two of the Topics, the State value is set by default. Meaning I am using the Set variable value node to set the Global.State variable to one of two States. In the other two Topics the value of the State should be set by the user choosing the state via multiple choice, in the question node. 3 of the 4 Topics seem to be working fine. However, the 4th Topic (which uses the multiple choice to set the variable value) shows an error: 


I've checked and the variable type is set to "choice".  Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thank you in advance!

    Update: Upon testing, when the user selects the state, it does appear to set the variable correctly but the error message still persists.
