What does the (+) and (-) syntax mean when used in a formula level reference?
If the chosen level modifier in a formula is a parent level, you have the choice to include data from the level and all levels underneath it, or just the level itself.
- Use the (+) syntax when you need the data for all levels that roll up to the parent level, including the parent (only) level.
- Use the (-) syntax when you need to reference data at the parent level (only), the (-) indicates NOT to roll up the values.
