Cash Flow Statement - Any good solution?

Hi all,

With reference to the above topic, I search this forum and read through most the thread and it seems that this topic (Cash Flow Statement) is a difficult topic for financial reporting, and does not good solution from this forum.

In the SAP (for china in this case), we have the following cash flow statement (made through report painter):

S_ALR_87012271 - Cash Flow (Direct Method)

S_ALR_87012272 - Cash Flow (Indirect Method) Variant 1

S_ALR_87012273 - Cash Flow (Indirect Method) Variant 2

S_ALR_87012274 - Cash Flow (AJI-03 Form)


I maintained a china financial statement version, and assigned this FS version to the cash flow form in the general data selection.

But the cash flow statement does not show any result, which is 'No records were selected' for the execution of the cash flow statement.

<b>Does anyone know what is the reason?</b>

There are some post from the Internet:

From this reference, it does say that cash flow is not a so straight-forward financial statement report.

My another question:

<b>What configuration that I need to do for the set-up of the cash flow statement?</b>

In SPRO, we have:

Financial Accounting - General Ledger Accounting - Business Transactions - Closing - Reporting - Legal Reporting China - Cash Flow Statement

<b>Do the above configurations affect the cash flow statement?</b>

Thanks in advance for your help.

    There is no configurations that you need to do.

    When u execute the report you will get a screen saying - no records selected.

    Click on the form icon in the same screen.You will see now a form.

    Here from the select the change icon and select from the menu

    Edit - General data selection

    You will get a Financial statement. Here you change the financial statement to what FS u have configured.

    Then click on each line item and assign the GL accounts pertaining to your FS.

    Then save the report.

    Again execute the report and you will get the Cash flow statement.
