Alias - outside grid?

I have an Alias applied on my report which generally works fine, but when I use the following in a footer it ignores the alias and just gives me the member name, is there a way around this?

<<MemberAlias("Grid1", "Version")>>

The member in question is picked at runtime via prompts.

Note the edit for the grid is NOT set to the default alias, but this work within the grid, just not for the footer formula as described above.

--Anyone run into this at all, is there any workaround, like a subtle variation on the above syntax that tells it which Alias to use??

    If you set the alias table within the grid, does it work fine? Is there a reason why you will not be able to do this?

    I have only one alias table, and the same syntax works fine for me on the footer.

    Thanks, not been my experience in a number of reports, but I am now wondering if this is because it is not the default alias, I will experiment based on your feedback that it does work.

    I get the member name, not my alternative alias.
