I'm attempting to create a function whereby it will return the line item value of it's parent without using SELECT.
I have a target module with Machines List (Top level All Machines), a source module with Machines list and a system module with the Machines list & a line item returning the Parent of that list item (All Machines)
Unfortunately when I reference the Target module from the source module using LOOKUP (referencing System module) it returns 0 but will work if I use a SELECT statement & select 'All Machines'
Is there a way to return the parent value without using SELECT?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I will assume that you are attempting to retrieve the 'Total Machines,' value of 9,553,403 for each machine type.
If so, the solution is quite straightforward.
Simply select the, 'Total Machines,' summary in the source to pull that through to the target
=Historical Sales.Total Machines
Sorry I don't follow, what would the function be?
FYI was trying to obtain the value without using SELECT statements
Thanks for the quick reply
I think I am missing something very obvious here!
But how do I reference the top level of the line item?
Apologies but still very confused. You are saying to reference the top item of a list (being All Machines in this case)? This go's against my understanding of Anaplan whereby you reference Line Items. If the module had more than 1 line item how would Anaplan know which line item was being referenced?
I tried this but received the below error
Have I totally mis-understood?
Your Source and Target modules contain same dimension.
Try the solution I have given, There is no need of Lookup or Sum.
