Account-based Calculation Business Rule - how to use "Source Period", "Source Year"

Dear BPC Gurus!

We are running on BPC NW10. Currently we are implemening Balance Carry-Forward process. Upon our investigation BCF business rules (COPYOPENING) are not flexible enough to serve our requirements. Thus we are investigating other options to implement BCF process.

The most promising option is Account-based Calculation BR that we are already using for our CF calculations. In order to use it I need to understand how "Source Period" and "Source Year" columns are meant to be used. See the attached screenshot below.

Especially I need an answer to the following question:

Is it possible to use relative value in "Source Year" field? (i.e. if we run calculation for YYYY.MM "Source Year" would be [YYYY-1]).

Any explanation very much appreciated as official SAP docu is very modest here.

    Hi Marek,

    In help it's more or less clearly stated "This rule can also use reference data in other periods and years to determine amounts to post." Yes it have to use relative data.
