find a module name by line item

Hi Team,

 

Is there any way we could identify the module name by line items?

 

As we are rebuilding/cleaning one of our modules we need to identify the modules name by line item.

suppose, say I need to delete/update the formulas for all the line items start with the name  "reporting 1 ".

 

When I search for line items in the module tab, there are many results (line items are present in multiple modules)

 

Please help is there any way we could find the module names?

 

Also, we haven't define code for our line items and hence this feature cannot be used.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

-Sandeep

There is no specific way that you can achieve that in Anaplan. Couple of options that you have already tried are having a code for line item and Checking Modules ->Line items glossary. One more option is taking the export of all line items and filter it outside Anaplan

Thanks for the reply @Misbah 

 

Though if I export the line items, it won't reveal the module name.

It should reveal the module name as well. Here is the snip of the export (See blue highlighted ones)

Hi @sandeep_bk ,

 

You can update the module name in the Notes of line items ( which is normally used to identify the purpose and context of any object in a model). This way when you search for line items in the module tab, you can scroll to Notes section to check the module name. 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks, 

Jitendra

Re: find a module name by line item

you can find some workaround here, exporting all the line items in Excel
