Invalid Formula: Line Item not recognized as Line Item or List Member Error

Hi everyone, 

 

I am working through a Territory Model project and came across a really weird issue and I was wondering if anyone else in the community has a reason for why the error message came up.

In the calculation itself, I am using a lookup function to bring in data from a calculation module to a data module but for some reason I get the error code above. I believe there is something going on with the naming convention and how it is being referenced? I managed to figure out a fix by doing the below, but was wondering if anyone knew why Anaplan is saying that the referenced line item is not being recognized properly. 

 

Solution: Changing the line item naming convention to something like "test", then after the calc references it I changed the line item back to what it originally is supposed to be

Re: Invalid Formula: Line Item not recognized as Line Item or List Member Error

Hi @hyunkangs ,

 

Generally Anaplan throws this error if the 'referencing item' is not defined as a line item or a list item. So in your case it is

"       'CAL011:Industry/Segment Properties'.it budget ser cloud saas total average     "

 

Anaplan is unable to locate the above list item/line item. This error occurs when we try to manually type the line item/list item in the formula bar rather than clicking on the respective line item/list item to include it in the formula. Even a single comma or extra space between line/list item names makes the formula incorrect.

 

I hope it helps

Hi Anand, 

 

Thanks for getting back to me; the weird thing is that I actually did use the formula bar and built it it out by clicking on it rather than typing it in

@hyunkangs ,

 

That's strange,

 

Would you not mind pasting some Anaplan snips of your implementation. So that I can dig a bit inside the error
