BCS % Allocation or Reclassification with Master Data

Post by dans » Tue Sep 26, 2006 2:13 pm

Is anyone aware of a way to have a BCS allocation or reclassification using a percentage where the percentage is stored in a statistical item? If so, the percentages may be updated by updating the values in the item as opposed to the method configuration.

In other words, for example, a reclassification is to multiply the balance of Inventory by a percentage. Currently the only means I am aware of to accomplish this is to enter the percentage within the method. It would be preferred however to use the percentage from the balance of a statistical item.

Any suggestions regarding this are greatly appreciated.

Dans,
You can allocate based on the ratio of values on certain accounts, eg CoS allocated to Cons Units based on the ratio of values against sales accounts.

So - if I get your idea correctly - you could allocate values (ie percentages) based on the ratio of values against your stat accounts.

Does this help any? I can supply more details if required.

I realize now that the approach is to first choose the % reclass method layout, then for the Type of % Rate Data select Transactional with Key Figure Quantity. Then the quantity may be include the % to be used for the calculation. This will be helpful for Minority Interest where COI is not implemented.
