    Hi @143kishornaidu ,


    In production list you can use SELECT on top level summary. If you need to get values from other levels you need to built the functionality with lookup instead. This is caused by the fact that on Production lists you might not have same list members in different environments so the system restricts you from using selects on these lists.


    Best Regards,

    Actually in ALM , we cant use SELECT for items marked as production data , it is because we are making them as production data means that the items in that list are to be updated in the production model , if we use select at a production list item marked in dev  , anaplan wont allow it as it not sure whether the same item is in production model or not as the list items are editable , hence there is a restriction on select at list item in ALM marked as production list , so to use that we use lookup table and use list formatted line item pointing to that list to refer value in production model
