Hello,
Quick question: How can I calculate the Volume between FY17 and F21 in the other module? For example, the difference between two years.
Note: Just Volume is a line item.
Please see the attached.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi @Markcol
I see there are 4 dimensions (including time) in the current module. Understanding as much as possible from your description and the image, I assume you want to select one value from each dimension and then you want to calculate the difference between the volume.
Here is my idea:
 Create one dimensionless module, add two line items for each dimension
 Dimension 1.1, Dimension 1.2, formatted by Dimension 1
 Dimension 2.1, Dimension 2.2, formatted by Dimension 2
 Dimension 3.1, Dimension 3.2, formatted by Dimension 3
 Period 1, Period 2, formatted by period (Year)
 Volume 1, Volume 2, Number formatted. To store the values corresponding to other dimension
 Difference, number formatted. Formula: Volume 1  Volume 2
 Formula of Volume line items : "The Source Volume line item"[Lookup: Dimension1.1, Lookup:Dimension 2.1, Lookup: Dimension 3.1, Lookup: Period 1]. Reference the other line items in Volume 2's formula.
 You'll have to manually select the values from list drop downs.
I hope it solves your problem.
Thanks!
