Edit Value Lookups

Describes how to edit value lookups for modeled sheets.

A value lookup translates a selection from a row of the sheet into time-based values. For example, benefits choices (HMO, PPO, and so on) may be associated with appropriate percentages. These percentages can then be multiplied by salaries to calculate benefits expense. The benefits choices and their percentages reside in a value lookup. 

You can edit a value lookup from a modeled sheet's summary page. Or, you can edit lookups directly within the model sheet builder.

Before You Begin

Required permission: Model Management Access > Model.
