IS Summary

Hi All,


I just wanted to understand the importance of Is summary in Anaplan. I have a module created with Is Summary switched on for a line item in my module which is preventing that line item from coming in the export view taken out by omitting summary items. When I remove the checkbox from is summary for that line item I see no impact on my values. Can anyone please help me understand the possible reason that why it would have been marked with Is summary on?


Thanks in advance.

Please refer to the following article to understand 'Parent' and 'IS Summary' with an example:
