Enabling Journals in a Model in SAP BPC 10.0 MS



Where does one enable journals functionality in SAP BPC 10.0 MS?

Here's the background:

I created a new Environment from EnvironmentShell

Worked on dimensions, member sheets etc. in the Consolidation Model

In the SAP Web Administration, Consolidation Monitor, I get the error Initialization Failed when clicking on the Journal item in the TreeView on the left. Clicking on the See Details, I get the error JOURNAL_NOT_ENABLED.

In the Planning and Consolidation Administration Client, I get a similar error when clicking on Define Journal Validation Rules or Define Journal Translation Rules. (Journal in not enabled in Consolidation)

I then thought I would be clever and modified the column 'Journal' in the table dbo.tblApp by putting a '1' there.

Refreshing the Planning and Consolidation Administration Client, I see that for the Consolidation Model, the Journals are specified as 'in use'. However, returning to the SAP Web Administration and clicking on the Journal option, the error I now get is 'Invalid object name dbo.jrnAddedItems', probably because my backdoor hack circumvented some code.

Where does one enable journals in a Model on the MS 10.0 platform? For the life of me, I can't find it. This despite much searching. Clearly I am missing something obvious.

Kind Regards
