I have 2 modules : one with the headcount and the other one with average salaries.
I want to create a third module with total salaries (which is headcount*average salary).
But, in the headcount module I have the headcount with line items internal vs external, and for salaries I have salary as line item. How can I calculate the total salaries with distinction internal/external if I don't have them as line items in average salaries module?
I tried to do a formula like IF is internal? or LOOKUP but I don't manage to make it work.
1) How about you make structural changes to the headcount and Average salaries module by moving line items(internal/external) under a list assuming you already have internal/external as a list. Then you can make a direct reference to your salary module.
2) Create a staging module for headcount and Average salaries module by creating a line item subset.
The staging module should include all the dimensions along with line item subtests. Now, maintain a mapping table that maps your list item (Internal/External) to Line-item subsets.
Finally, you can pull the values from staging with simple lookups.
