Subsequent activation of scenario FIN_CONS (no doc splitting)


We are live on New GL for a while. We use a third-party tool for consolidation. One of the custom program reads the data, and sends a file to this third party tool for consolidation. We do send trading partner information for P&L. We read the data for these GL accounts from line item tables.

We have a new requirement to send the trading partner information for balance sheet accounts. I would like to read the trading partner information from FAGLFLEXT table as opposed to reading from line item tables.

As of now, FIN_CONS was not assigned to the ledger “0L”. I would like to activate that for “0L”. I have to populate trading partner for small amount of historic data. In order to do this, I am planning to make journal entries in the current period as below


Credit GL 110000 1000$ Trading partner “Space”

Debit GL 110000 1000$ Trading partner “ABC”

also,we will clear all the inter company invoices before I move the new scenario into production.

As per SAP, we have to create a new ledger and activate the scenario for this new ledger. But I do not want to follow this approach for the following reasons:

  • 1.Our FAGLFLEXA table is huge. If I create a new ledger, the size of this table grows even more.
  • 2.Our historic data conversion is so minimal. I think we will be able to handle this easily with journal entries and clearing all the ICB invoices before we move the change.
  • 3.We are not going to activate doc splitting for this scenario.

Do you see any flaws in this approach? What would you do if you in my position?
