Copy % inputs to children (within a module)

Hi,

Is there any functionality similar to breakback, but instead breaking the values (%s) equally accross children, i want to copy the value accross childres. I am trying to enter growth % at company level on a line item in a module, and i want that % to be copied accross departments (departments roll upto companies) instead of breaking evenly.

 

Thanks in advance

As departments roll up into companies, and assuming Companies is a separate lists, you can bring in the %s from company using the LOOKUP function

 

1. Set up a module dimensioned by the Departments list (let's call it Department Details)

2. Add a line item called Company and format it as the Companies list

3. Add the formula PARENT(ITEM(Departments))

 

In the source model, you will have the % entered at Company level, so in the target module the formula will be something like:

Company Growth Assumptions.Growth%[LOOKUP:Department Details.Company]

 

Hope that helps

David
