Today's Date

Hi, How can i refer Today's Date in a formula so as the values would change every day based on that days date. For e.g. if its 09th june then the formula should give result as 09th june . The next day i.e. 10th june the value should get updated to 10th june. Is there any such functionality or formula available inside Anaplan. Please let me know ThankYou

  • Hi Leo, 

    Here's the script that I've used that is setup to run as a .bat file. You'll need to just rename the .txt to .bat to convert it back.

    Would be great if you can point to / send this script to me. We are looking to solve a similar issue at one of our customers.

    [quote]Emily DunnPavan,

    There is a script available through Anaplan Connect that will allow the import of today's date into the model. This is the only way that the date can be updated throughout the model. There are no formulas that will enable that function to automatically happen.

    If you are interested in that script, please let me know and I can get that to you.
    Thank you!
  • Can I have this script as well?
  • Can i have the script?thanks!

  • Could i have a copy of the script please. I have one currently but it is not reliable.


    Thank you


  • Hi Emily,


    Do you have the .bat version instead of .sh?




  • @alec_judd or @greg_kajewski - See Leo's question, please. Do you have a .bat available?

  • Thanks Greg!

  • Hi @greg_kajewski!


    Thanks for the .bat file.

    I have a question to get it running though:

    It says to customize the following directory:

    This variable AC_exe should be set to the path of the AnaplanClient.bat
    set AC_exe=D:\Anaplan\AnaplanClient.bat

    but since Anaplan models are running completely web-based and there is no local client running I do not see how I can access this path. I have not a lot of technical know-how on how these things work, but if you could clarify a little it would be very helpful.

  • Hi Lukas, 

    When you download Anaplan Connect, it comes with a java based client. Therefore, the path is calling a small application within this download. 


    Feel free to use this link to download Anaplan Connect and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions. 


  • Hi ,


    Can you please share the script
