Balance Carried Forward - Transformation Routine

Hi BI Experts.

I have the DSO 0FIGL_O02 - FI Line Items and a transformation to agregate the dato to a cube.

In the transformation I calculate 0BALANCE. I have the code which works fine for the GL Accounts (P&L) however the 0BALANCE does not calculate correctly for the GL Accounts (Balanace Sheet) since they need to have the balance carried forward each year.

Please can you share the code if you have calculated Balance Carried Forward in a transformation routine.

By the way I cannot use the Standard Cube (0FIGL_C01) that already extracts the 0BALANCE correctly from R3.

Many thanks

Michelle

    Hi, The carry forward balances are part of standard extractor, 0FI_GL_10, this datasource gives the opening balances/Carry forward balances for every account in a year,

    so if you combine the current year balances and the above datasource balances then you will get the Inception to date balance which matches to ERP,

    As Sreekanth has suggested use 0FI_GL_10 in case you are trying to develop new report based for balance. But few points for your reference before using 0fi_gl_10

    1) Check with your FI consultant whether its old GL or new GL concept in use in ECC. FI_GL_10 is for new GL.

    2) The corresponding DSO 0FIgl_O10 has issue in terms of key. Make sure the DSO key is corrected before using it.

    3) 0FI_GL_10 offers very few characteristics & the time granularity is month. In case you are into new GL & require day wise data or more characteristics then go for 0fi_gl_14. But note for 0fi_gl_14 you need to write a query variable in such a way that it takes the from date since inception. 0fi_gl_14 does not readily gives balance field like 0fi_gl_10 gives.
