How to enhance Data Source "P&L - Plan/Actual" with "Alternative G/L Account" field

Dear community,

we would like to make "Alternative G/L Account" field available for "P&L - Plan/Actual" (C_PROFITANDLOSSPLANACTQ2903) reports.

We've tried to enhance the following data sources:

But we have only been able to extend it for the "P&L - Actuals".

For the "P&L - Plan/Actuals" we cannot see the field available.

Any clue on how to answer this "nice to have" from our client?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

    Dear João,

    It is not possible to extend the "P&L - Plan/Actuals" in the same way as the "P&L - Actuals" due to technical differences in the underlying CDS views.

    If you want to create a "P&L - Plan/Actuals" report including the "Alternative G/L Account", you could achieve it by:

    1. Create your own custom CDS view using the "Custom CDS Views" tile. As primary data source you could use "I_ActualPlanJrnlEntryItem".

    2. In your own custom CDS view based on "I_ActualPlanJrnlEntryItem" you can select the field

    "AlternativeGLAccount" as association of "_GLAccountInCompanyCode".

    3. With the tile "Custom Analytical Queries" you can create a query on your own custom CDS view including the "Alternative G/L Account".

    Best regards
