Look up Function reference formula


Hello Connections ,

Can anybody help me for the below query :-

I need  to update the formulas for the bonus and benefits lines in Module EMP02, using a combination of data from the module  EMP03 and module SYS08. 

When I use the below formula :-  IF Employed? THEN Salary * 'EMP03 Employee Drivers by Role'.Bonus % [LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Role, LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Department] ELSE 0


I am getting the error as Data type mismatch . Can anybody suggest with the correct reference formula? Below is the screen shot for all the modules:-


EMP03 ( Grid View)



EMP 03 (BluePrint)



SYS 08 Blue Print View



SYS08 (Grid View)



EMP02 (Grid View)



EMP02 (Blue Print View)








  • Hi there - you may want to rebuild/reload SYS08. The list of employees should not show up in the blueprint view. Good luck with Level 1 🙂

  • Thanks a lot 🙂

  • I have tried again to reload the text file /also open the text file in CSV format in the module but the line items still appearing in the blueprint view . Can you suggest how can i resolve this problem
  • You'll need to delete all of the employee line items. Use Control + Shift to select all of the employees within the blueprint view and then click the "-" (circled in screen shot). Follow the prompts to delete the line items.
