When using Dynamic text or Variable tags as the alarm description, the alarm summary page may not display the correct alarm description for the alarms displayed. 

The solution to this problem is to use SUMDESC in the alarm categories - summary format, rather than DESC. This will display the description value at the instant of the alarm occurrence rather then the latest description value for all the listed alarm.
