Alias's

I am creating a form that has fields which inherit values from another document.  The values that are inherited are coming from fields where the values are selected from dropdown lists and the values have aliases ex Cape of Good Hope |001.
When the value is displayed in the field that is inheriting, the alias is displayed and not the actual name.  
How can I get the name to be displayed?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a common problem with keyword fields having aliases. You should write if condition to display the actual keyword.

eg:
@if( kw = "001"; "Cape of Good Hope"; kw = "002"; "xxxxx"; "Default");

Good Luck
