Calculation on top level selection in line item subsets and list item subsets
Hi Anaplan Community,
Currently it is not possible to use a summary top level of a list subset or line item subset in a calculation without using a workaround using a boolean and using the complete list or line item list.
If anaplan had the capability to allow modellers to use the top level in a line item subset or list item subset this would make it easier to calculate and aggregate on a selection of all relevant items to the subset list or line item subset.
This would prove very usefully where you have large lists but need to calculate the summary of a top level of the subset.
Hopefully we can incorporate this in the platform.
Thanks,
Usman

The summary of the toplevel for a subset list can be achieved using a lineitem with "Applies To" setup as the Subset list. Automatically the Top level will store the summary of the subset list.
Is this what you want to achieve or am I missing something?
In the below picture the lineitem "Vol Subset" has "Applies To" the subset of the list and the formula "Vol Subset" = "Volumes".
