Select Function

Hi Community,

 

I am trying to use select function with an list member, but it is not working at all. Is there anything that i need to enable as a part of setting?

 

Thanks & Regards

Badam

Re: Select Function

Hi @Badam ,

 

As per best practice, don't select any list item directly in your formula instead you can do lookup.

Create one System Lookup module without any dimension. add line item & format of the line item should be your list & then you can do lookup at your formula.

 

Thanks

Akhtar

And of course the only exceptions to this are versions, generic time settings such as all periods and top-level items in list per planual item 2.02-14

Hi @andrewtye 

 

Even in case of versions also it is not allowing me to select using clicks. I had to enter VERSIONS.Actual.

 

Any particular reason for that?

Hi @Badam 

Oh, I see what you mean now. Looks like in the Classic Model Experience you couldn't do click on the versions when using select, but you could for list items - which you now can't in NMX.

Wonder if this is something deliberate in the back-end to prevent it from happening.

@ChrisM : could you shed some light on it or should this be a support ticket?

We hope to resolve this in a future release.
