Numbered Lists


I am trying to get the underlying number from a numbered list for referrence on imports; without turning display name off and on. Is it possible to create property in a numbered list to return the underlying number? If not, is there a formula that can pull out the underlying number in a module?  Thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark,

    You may have worked this out, given that it's been awhile since your original post.  However, the formula you can use to return the underlying number that Anaplan assigns each item is to use NAME(ITEM('list name')) and have the property formatted as text.  Obviously you'll have to replaced the 'list name' with the name of your actual list, but that should give you a visual of what number is assigned to each item.
