The SAP Help for COI Subsequent Consolidation lines 17 and 18 in Purchase Method nominates cons unit A (the parent of the cons unit U which has earnings of -100 in the period).
The Items posted to are: Retained Earnings +40; and Net Income (Income Statement) -40.
The SAP Help seems inconsistent with what I see in our BCS system.
Aren't these lines the offsets / balancing entries for lines 3 and 4?
Should the SAP Help really be nominating cons unit U in lines 17 and 18?
