Level 1 exam formulas to the Line items


I am trying to update the formulas but it shows error. What is wrong for this formula?


The formula for 'REP04 Employee Expense Summary'.Salary is invalid:

Salary = IF Employed? THEN 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Current Salary / 12 ELSE 0

    Your first equation looks right but that formula is meant for EMP02 module. Also in the EMP02 module is the Employed? Boolean.

    Salary Expense = IF Employed? THEN 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Current Salary / 12 ELSE 0

    Employed? = Started? AND NOT Left?

    The REP04 module then uses the EMP02 module as a reference

    'EMP02 Employee Expenses'.Salary[SUM: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Region, SUM: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Role]

    See if that helps.


  • Its saying you don't have an "Employed ?" line item. Create this boolean first.
  • Can I use If Employees# Because in the line item Employees#, I would have a Boolean that would equal true or false, thus Anaplan would think that I am writing If employees# =true then …else ….

    But the formula shows error and can not find the correct formula. What is wrong this formula below?


    IF Employees# THEN Salary [LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Role LOOKUP: "SYS08 Employee Details'.Region] ELSE 0

  • Thank you very much for the explanations and it helped me to solve the issue!

    Many thanks,
