The method must be changed manually via the Accounting Technique assignment. We have for specific reasons assigned in one hierarchy the equity method to cons units that are 100% owned. In the other (legal) hierarchy the purchase method is assigned for those cons units that are 100% owned.

If not for reported data this must be for documents or additional financial data. For documents the system follows the same validation as with reported data with respect to the breakdown categories. Additionally, you may configure a validation for the documents and assign it as part of the document ...

The only difference is that level 01 records are combined with level 00 records when the balance carry forwards is executed. My preference is to avoid using level 01 because the audit trail disappears from year to year.

Sias,

If all of the cons units are in each hierarchy, eliminations need only be executed for one of the hiearachies, as these are posted at the company level.

However, for consolidation of investments, these tasks must be executed for each hierarchy seperately.

Cheers,

I have had several company hierarchies.

Where is it that you cannot create additional company hierarchies in BCS?

You may also set which company hierarchies are displayed in the monitor in the Consolidation Monitor configuration.

The reclassification would proceed copying the data as it is in the source version, and subsequently reverse the signs.

I'm not certain about the mapping but could it not be possible to use the BAdI Filter of the copy method Settings tab for this?

There is a separate program to delete documents from the document ODS. Deleting Totals records does just that - deletes totals records. One suggestion for changing the sign is via reclassification. I have used this before. Another obtion you may try is the copy task/method where a conversion routine...

I have used this before and access would be given typically to those who may also make changes to the breakdown categories, as this is the only time where the check is necessary. There is not a lot of details as to where the inconsistencies exist but searching the totals records will usually provide...

If the rates are available in R/3 or ECC, there is an tool in the BW worbench to extract them.

One way to do this is to click on Source Systems, then right click on the source R/3 client and choose Transfer Exchange Rates.

I always keep the balance sheet and Income statement items separate for translation. The balance sheet is usually translated on a cumulative basis at the month-end rate. The Income Statement items are usually translated on a periodic basis at the month average rate.

If the operational accounts are acceptable for consolidation there is no need to set up the group accounts, simply map the FS Item to the operational accounts in the Load from Datastream method.

You should not have this problem if the specific currency translation key is set to periodic, and both the reference tranlsation and specific exchange rate determination are the same rate type.

More than one user-defined layout in the BCS monitor?

Does anyone know a way to have more than one user-defined layout in the BCS monitor? If so it would be appreciated if you would advise on how to accomplish this.

Thanks!

Copy only allows for levels 00 through 10 and maybe 12, but certainly not 20 through 30.

I can't speak for the Delete function, but if you delete posting level 00 through 12 and execute the elimination tasks everything should end up at zero except for any manual eliminations if any.
