How do I sum across dimensions other than time?
Hi All,
I have a question about how to calculate sum cross specific dimension.
For instance, I have a input like this:
X1 X2
Y1 1 5
Y2 3 3
Y3 6 2
Now both X and Y are lists that I created and put into module's page selector so i can toggle.
I would like to create a module to such that when i choose X1 and Y2, there will be a column hold value 3, then another cell hold ALL X's sum within Y2 (6) and another hold ALL Y's sum within X1 (10).
Is there anyway I can achieve this?
Thank you so much!

Hi,
this is such a great question to understand dimensionality and summary in Anaplan !
I did an example, here's the "database":
Note that you need to have summary levels in your dimensions
Then the result:
and how this is achieved:
LOOKUPs are fully dynamic and they use the user input to find the value value at the crossing of the dimensions
SELECTs are searching for a fixed value ented in the formulas, here the sumary level of the required dimension
I believe this should help you understand. Feel free to ask questions
