SUM of a Line Item

Hi all, I am trying to calculate the total of a Line Item to use in a formula (for example: totals are listed at top or bottom but I need to use this total amount in a formula). I have tried to use a 'SUM' formula for the line item but have not been able to get the formula to correctly work. Is there a simplified way to do this for use in a formula? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Kaley

RE: SUM of a Line Item

Hi Kaley You can just select the line items you need to sum up by just clicking the + sign after each line item. Just activate the formula bar and start selecting the line items which should be part of the total and anaplan would automtically write the aggregation for you. Or in the blue print mode there is a parent column where you can select the applicable total line item as parent for all the child line items.
