    Hi Sunny,

    If you are doing planing functional area wise and you multiple functional areas then its better to create new dimension else you can do concatenation of functional are to account .

    No I was not trying to exclude any of the FA. What I was asking was that if there is another way of designing the report to show account and functional area other than nested columns; but I'm able to achieve what I wanted based on the screen shot I sent earlier.

    Thanks,

    Hi Sunny,

    Do you have Functional area as a dimension? If yes....then can you please share your report structure with screenshot?

    In P&L for operating expenses do you have to show individual functional area wise expenses or a cumulative sum of functional areas for a particular expense?

    Share report screenshot!

    Regards,

    Below is a screen shot. I basically have Account on the first column and Functional Area on the second column. For operating Expense, yes specific account and Functional area combination would have to be displayed, in this case IRAD, BP, MKTG which are non admin expenses are displayed as well as the FA that makes up the admin is displayed.

      Sunny, so are you saying that you have to exclude some of the functional areas while displaying in the report? In your above report IRAD ,BP,MKTG are non admin expenses, so do you have to exclude this from your report?? What is that you want to show? Please explain

      Regards,
