Special item "P+L result" in Financial Statement Version

Dear SAP expert,

I am new in SAP ERP. Now I am setting for FSV.

I create seperate FSV for BS and PL report.

For the PL report, I create item and assign all PL account to items. And set the "P+L result" as the Net Profit/Loss, because in my opinion, this item will be calculated base on the balance of all P+L account, so this item will be equal to Net Profit/Loss.

But I use T-code S_ALR_87012284 to test the FSV. The "P+L result" show the amount = -1,048,391.95 (this mean we have profit); but the correct figure should be = 1,048,391.95 (possitive amount, mean we have loss).

Please help me explain how the "P+L result" is calcualated; and how I change the setting so this items show the correct amount.


Thank and regards

TungLTS

    Hi Tung Lu,

    To change the sign of P+L Result, double click on the "P+L Result", a new dialog box opesn, you could find the "+/- Sign change" in the bottom of the dialog box. Please select the option to change the sign..

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Hi Tung,

    Your understanding is wrong. If the report is showing the P&L result as negative, then it is a loss else it is a profit.
