# Calculate Opening Balance for GL for Reporting

Hi,

I have the requirement to report opening balances against GL. The report would like somewhat as shown below:

a) The user will execute the report for a certain month .eg: Feb-2016 and the columns "Opening Balance", "Adjustment" and "Closing Balance" will be populated all the way till Sep-2012.

b) The base data is coming from a view that combines BSEG+BKPF tables in SAP HANA.

c) Closing Balance for a given month = Opening Balance + Adjustment.

d) Adjustment and Closing Balance are two columns in an underlying Calculation View that is used as the base for reporting.

e) Formula of opening balance for a given month = Closing balance for the previous month.

With the information provided above, could you please suggest a few ways how the column "Opening Balance" could be designed in SAP HANA? Please let me know if any additional information is required.

Thank You,

Anjana

Hi Anjana,

This can be achievable b y Scripted Calculation Views using Windows Function in SQL scripts.

Assume Rs. 50,000 is Opening Balance for the Month Sep-12.

Adjustments for the Month Sep-12 is Rs.100,

Adjustments for the Month Oct-12 is Rs.110,

It is going on like this.

Table:

Create column Table GL_OP_BAL_APR26

(ID Integer,

Month Varchar(10),

Opening_Balance Integer,

Data:

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (1, 'Sep-12', 500000, 100);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (2, 'Oct-12', 500000, 110);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (3, 'Nov-12', 500000, 120);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (4, 'Dec-12', 500000, 130);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (5, 'Jan-13', 500000, 140);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (6, 'Feb-13', 500000, 150);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (7, 'Mar-13', 500000, 160);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (8, 'Apr-13', 500000, 170);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (9, 'May-13', 500000, 180);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (10, 'Jun-13', 500000, 190);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (11, 'Jul-13', 500000, 200);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (12, 'Aug-13', 500000, 210);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (13, 'Sep-13', 500000, 220);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (15, 'Nov-13', 500000, 240);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (16, 'Dec-13', 500000, 250);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (17, 'Jan-14', 500000, 260);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (24, 'Aug-14', 500000, 330);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (25, 'Sep-14', 500000, 340);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (26, 'Oct-14', 500000, 350);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (27, 'Nov-14', 500000, 360);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (28, 'Dec-14', 500000, 370);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (29, 'Jan-15', 500000, 380);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (30, 'Feb-15', 500000, 390);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (31, 'Mar-15', 500000, 400);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (32, 'Apr-15', 500000, 410);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (33, 'May-15', 500000, 420);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (34, 'Jun-15', 500000, 430);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (35, 'Jul-15', 500000, 440);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (36, 'Aug-15', 500000, 450);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (37, 'Sep-15', 500000, 460);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (38, 'Oct-15', 500000, 470);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (39, 'Nov-15', 500000, 480);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (41, 'Jan-16', 500000, 500);

Insert into GL_OP_BAL_APR26 values (42, 'Feb-16', 500000, 510);

Now use this SQL Logic with Windows Function:

Select

ID, Month,

Opening_Balance - Sum(Adjustments) OVER (ORDER BY ID) As Closing_Balance

From GL_OP_BAL_APR26

It will give you the required output.

Hope It would resolve your Issue.
