@Panji 

Anaplan is very particular about the Excel formatting, especially with decimal places.

In your case, I'm guessing your Excel value is displaying in scientific notation. You will need to change that to normal notation.

 

Example,

In Excel I have two formats. Both have the same number but one is in Scientific Notation.

I import both of these values into Anaplan. See what happens?

The scientific notation is taken literally.

If you change you Excel format to show all the digits, you should be okay.

Hi @Panji 

 

If your number uses 'dot' as thousand separator, you can do the following:

1. Assuming this is the data file, note that the thousand separator is 'dot'

2. Blueprint format of receiving Anaplan module. Note the change to 'Thousand Separator'

3. In your import action definition, change the 'Decimal Separator' to 'Comma'.

4. Below is the end result in the receiving module.
