Filter on the line with a module which have different dimension



In a module i have to filter a line with boolean line from another module but both modules have different dimension. in Target module we concatinate 3 attribute, but in source module(where the boolean is) we are using a list with only one attribute. Systen is unable to identify the line. need a formula for filtered value so thaxt if the boolean is checked then the amount should be 0.

    Hi @Aditya1993 ,

    Against the target module's dimension, you should be able to identify corresponding source module dimension item - since it's part of the concatenated attributes. In other words, B3282 should be easily found from B3282_D_80005_2023.12…. list item. With a simple LOOKUP on this extracted source list item, you can fetch the boolean from source module to target module , and then use it as the filter.


    You can now use 'Selected Source Item?' as your filter.

    Note: To identify source list portion, I simply extracted first character of target list item. In your case, try to put more efficient formula (ex: identify first underscore "_" and extract the string before that underscore position). This should depend on your source list items and the separator of your attributes.



  • Hi @Aditya1993 ,

    Lets assume Module 1 is the module where you have used the concatenated list and module 2 is the moduel used for single list.

    Below are the steps I would follow to filter in module 1 driven by module 2:

    1. Extract the single list from the concatenation list in to a line item(text formatted) . Ex : B3282 in a line item .
    2. Create line item Module 2 list (list formatted - list used in module 2) Derive the list from this text format line item using Finditem.
    3. Create Boolean line item in both modules. In module 1 it will be formula driven and in module 2 it will be input field.
    4. Formula for boolean line item in module 1 = Boolean from module 2.[Lookup: Module 2 list]
    5. You can use this boolean for filter in module 1 and inputs will be driven by other module.

    Let me know if you have further doubts.

    Hope this helps!

    Also, you really need to take the Time Period out of your list. Check out this article…
