Hi Eujin It depends on the requirements you have, may be if you could tell the requirement we can see how to use the sum product, as sumproduct uses various combinations.

RE: Sumproduct fuction in Anaplan

Hi, I am also looking to do a sumproduct of sorts, basically I need to take a proportion from previous months, with a multiplier from the current month. With months left to right in Excel the formula looks like this SUMPRODUCT(N2/C5:M5,C6:M6). N2 is the multipier from the current month, row 5 the volumes and row 6 the proportions to take through. is this possible without creating lots of rows and summing them? I have one example which needs to use 5 years, so splitting the formula out would be very long and messy. Any advice would be gratefully recieved!

To calculate a sum-product like
`SUMPRODUCT('Line Item 1', 'Line Item 2')`
you need to define an intermediate line item for the products, then sum that. So you'd define a new line item called Product, with the formula
`'Line Item 1' * 'Line Item 2'`
Then your sum-product is the total of the Product line item. The same technique works if you've got three or more line items for your sum-product.
