Hi everyone,

While you are creating a model for consolidation a window appears with various fields, you need to enter the package, FYvariant, dimension, final and preliminary category and a dummy transaction type, I don´t understand why the transaction type is a dummy.

Do someone can help me?

Why should we select Transaction type 900 (software)? Why is Transaction Type a dummy?

This is simply a default transaction type or flow to be used when your base data (universal Journal) does not have transaction type assigned to it. If you have the t.type in source, this will be kept when moving to RTC.

Flow is part of the BPC modelling and you need that even for P&L accounts.

Usually you'd use 999 - Closing or something similar in that.

Hi Lucas,Should a hierarchy be created in the flow dimension with 999 as a parent?


There are two different things. One is the dummy transaction type to be used in when the source does not provide transaction type. The hierarchy is to be used to generate the closing flow. You can create the hierarchy in BPC even though the members are coming from S/4


Hi Lucas,

My dummy transaction is 999.

Should I create another member (different from 999) to act as a parent in my hierarchy?

Thank you
