Model Builder level one exam activity 5

In EMP02 Employee Expenses, I keep getting zeroes from my formulas

This is an example of the formula I am using for Bonus:

IF Employed? THEN Salary * 'EMP03 Employee Drivers By Role'.Bonus %[LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Department, LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Role] ELSE 0

What's also strange is that in SYS08, the roles dont populate even though I have it formatted as list

Can someone please help. I've been stuck on this for over 8 hours

    You may have answered your own question. You need to add the new role list then add a new line item to SYS08 with a LIST formatted line item. Make sure you aren't using text format. You'll then need to load the file that has all the employees roles. Make sure you use CODE as the identifier not the employees name. It's a numbered list so Anaplan has no idea who these people are by name, only their code.

    SYS08 should look like this:

    Oh that worked! The problem was that I wasn't using the CODE as the identifier. Thank you so much!!!
