Why does @parentVal return #MISSING?

Received Response
in Planning 25 comments


Can someone help me understand why @parentVal("Period", "Working") returns #MISSING for the sample code below?

Content (required):

I have set up a simple example to understand how this function works, and I'm running into a bit of an issue.

In the first screenshot below, @parentVal("Period", "Working") returns #MISSING when calculating Jan.

However, the second screenshot shows that Q1 (the parent of Jan) has a value of .34.

If Q1 = .34, why does @parentVal("Period", "Working") return #MISSING? What am I overlooking?

Thanks in advance!
