anyone who can help on formula "ABS"?
I need to get the absolute value of the line item, but Anaplan seems to round off the item.
Any notes on this? Thank you.
Below is the screenshot for sample:
The issue is with the VALUE formula and not with the ABS formula
This occurs in Anaplan when the value formula is used on a string greater than 16 characters
Screenshots below taking example of Row 8 in your screenshot
16 chars screenshot
17 chars screenshot
I don't think there is any way to avoid this behavior..
Can you please elaborate on why this formula is required and maybe we can think of another way of achieving it
Could you try bringing in the contract number as a number? and then convert to text to join with the company code
Also, why do you need the ABS, that will only happen if the Company code is negative?
And do you need the Company code and contract number as a number rather than a text field?
Finally, it would be better to provide the join in the source file if possible - that prevents all of the above!
