Dear Guru's

I have Requirement of designing a Bex report for Balance Sheet.

For this , Initially the i have activated G/L (New): Balance Sheet and Profit a - Virtual cube and i maintained Hierarchy (0GLACCTXT ) - financial version statement in ECC , As per ECC hierarchy . i mapped and i have done the report .

All things are fine.

But now Client Requires in the Same report Flat FILE data things has to Come and that flat file records are nothing but opening balance,

there they will see the Opening Balance things in one columns , Second Column transaction records (ECC - Virtual Cube) and another column is closing balance like that.

For that i have Created a info cube and i maintained same info objects which are there in virtual cube and i created a multi provider by combining Flat file cube and Virtual cube.

how to create Key Figure columns

which are opening Balance are Flat File data,

Current balance are ECC data...

Please Guide me Guru's

    Hello Syam,

    is the opening balance load from flat file a one time load or will you be receiving a opening balance file every period moving forward ?

      Hello Syam,

      If they are looking for opening balance every period/month, then you need to store the data in a backend data model and derive it (not possible to do it over a virtual cube)

      but if it just a simple closing balance (opening balance - postings). then you could create opening balance and postings key figures in the multiprovider and calculate the closing balance in bex query.
