Lists are a dimension, like Time and Versions, and are used to form rows, columns, or pages in modules. Model builders use lists to group related items in a model.
For example, use lists to group similar products, employees in a department, or geographic regions.
You can also format line items as lists. For example, if a line item is formatted as the Regions list, its list items are available in the cell for the user to select from.
List items in lists are different to line items in the following ways:
- List items can only be referenced by a formula. Line items can be referenced by a formula, and can contain a formula.
- List items can be used in any module. Line items belong to only one module.
Create and manage your lists in General Lists
