How to model annual inflation in Anaplan?


Hi Anaplan Modeling Experts,


I found it is not that straightforward to play with timeseries data in Anaplan, when the calculation logic for a specific item is referring to the values of itself from the previous period.


In this example, I am trying to model the annual inflation rates.


In Excel, it is quite easy, just type the formula once and drag and drop for the rest of the cells in column D (see attachement or below):

What would be the recommended option to model this in Anaplan?


Kind regards,

    @Noemi.andres suggestion is a good one.

    Additionally, you can create what's called a system module, a separate module that only contains the annual inflation rates. 

    Then you can just look it up from you calculation module.
