How to use Method Type

Dear Experts,

There are several consolidation method types:N(new), H(Holding), G(Global), L (leaving during the year), D(disposed at last year-end) and etc. i have searched out the SCN but cannot find the detail instructions on how to use such method types.

Based on my understanding, method type H is used for holding company, and one scope can only have one holding company, G means full consolidation company. L is used to identify the company left during the year, meaning if it leaves at July 2016, then from July to Dec 2016, it should be remained in the scope but set as L. D is used to identify the company at the beginning of the year, meaning if the company leaves at 2016.01.01, then from Jan to Dec 2016, it should be set as D.

But i have a question on the N(new), do we need to use it? for example, we have a new entity comes on July 2016, then shall we set it as N on July, and change it to G(global) from Aug 2016?

For method type L and D, if we still need to get Profit and Loss balance data in BPC for the remaining periods of the year, the system will automatically only put the data before divested into scope? for example, one entity is divested on July 2016, during the whole year, this entity still has data loaded into BPC, for PL balances, we still need to keep the data before Aug 2016 to calculate minority profit, but get rid of the data from Aug 2016.

Hope you guys can help here! Really Appreciate !
