Line item to match boolean
Hi Community,
I would like to ask a little bit simple question. i already have the Current Month +1 line item working. So now the requirement is to match Current month +1 to a line item which is a Boolean.
I tried the formula IF item(time)= Current MOnth +1 (text) then true else false. it was not accepted. I am thinking because CUrrent month is text formatted. Am I wrong on this?
Kindly correct me if possible.
Regards,

Hello @Jsdeloria21 ,
Yes, it is because it is text. You are trying to compare a text with a time period and Anaplan will not understand it.
On top of that, what do you mean by current month? Because what I am seeing is just every month +1.
Please find a breakdown of steps below:
Was the above what you were after?
Cheers!

Hello @Jsdeloria21 ,
If you have defined a time period in the Time tab in Anaplan, this should be enough. As long as the solution is exactly what you are after.
Try and let me know how it goes.

Hi @BrunoRodriguez ,
Current Month is just the name of the line item, so there no conversion needed from text to time period? I can just go ahead and link the current month +1 to the boolean line item.?
Appreciate your assitance on this @BrunoRodriguez

@Jsdeloria21 Just as a small note: For a boolean formula you don't need the IF .. THEN .. ELSE since Anaplan already knows that if your formula is true it should put a true and else a false….see as an example the formula in @BrunoRodriguez screenshot
