Level 2 Sprint 2 - Dem01 data uploading wrong information

Hi All - I am trying to upload the Volume+Growth+Rates.csv https://anaplanenablement.s3.amazonaws.com/Files/Level2_onDemand/Volume+Growth+Rates.csv . The first time I tried, I got the error.

So I changed the format on the excel to date 03/04/12 and tried again and it uploaded. But the values are showing up as below, which appears no relation to the data in the sheet. Can you please advise what I am doing wrong

@sunilramakumar 

 

I would recommend not to change the format into dates.Here is what you can do

 

Step 1: Without opening the Input .csv file upload the file into Anaplan It so happens when you open csv files it changes the period format. But if you wish to open the file before loading it, it may look like this

You can try change the format in your source file . Right Click on any Cell and click on Format Cells and choose the option of "mmm-yy" Once that is done save the file.

Alternatively if you want to save yourself some time just download it again from the exam portal and use that without opening

 
 

Step 2: Keep the time mapping as Period of M-Y on Anaplan.

You should be able to see the results as expected

Hope that helps

Hi Misbah - Thank you for your inputs. But I am getting the error:

 

Option 1:

Is this something related to the date format that I have selected ? ( There seems to be no year in the file)

Do you know why the Y-M format worked?  I was stuck on the same issue forever

Re: Level 2 Sprint 2 - Dem01 data uploading wrong information

Hi Rachel - I am still a novice, but my understanding is that the Y-M maps to the source and the input file has that format

One thing to do before importing such files is to open it in notepad and check the Date format.

 

For this file, you will see it has 20-Jan, 20-Feb, etc. (Y-M) format. Hence if you select Y-M when uploading this file, it will be uploaded successfully.

 

Thanks!

Hi Vivek,

Please check my comment above. Open the file you're trying to load in notepad. Check the format and select that format when you go through the upload exercise.

For the Dem01 data, it should be Y-M format. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Hiren
