Hi, If I want to delete large data in a module at once, how should I do? When I selected a lot of cells and then hit the delete key, Operation Unavailable message was shown (as attached the screenshot). In what kind of situation is this message shown? Also, doesn't Anaplan have all data deletion command? Thanks and regards, Maki Yasuda
One way to do it would be to change one of the dimensions to an empty subset of the same dimension, then change it back. That will preserve the dimensionality and it won't break any modules that refer to the data, and it will set all the data to zeroes, blanks, false, etc.
If it's something you want to do regularly you should set up an import action ot import a blank dataset into the module, and select Clear Target on all dimensions. That will also clear out the module.
Thank you for your helpful advice.
However, I'm not sure to understand what the following sentence means. What should I do concretely?

As for a blank subset import action, I understand.
Thanks and reagards,
The other way would be that you go to the line item and in the formula bar give the value as 0, all the values would be converted to 0 and then delete the formula in the line item. These are not recommended ways though just work arounds.
Hi Peter and Harish,
Thank both of you for your great advice.
One-by-one directions are very fine and helpful for me!
I tried that and could confirm that all data in module went down to zero in the both patterns.
Thank you for kindly support!
