EC-CS: FI-GL->FS item hierarchy

My customer is about to implement EC-CS. My question is regarding how to get data from FI to EC-CS with realtime update (FI and EC-CS in same client). In FI they already have a financial statement version (FSV) -that they use to consolidate in MS Excel files- including knots/numbers that could serve as FS items and serve as well as group account numbers.

1. Am I right that I can set up the FS item hierarchy (=consolidation COA) via transaction CX16 u201CCopy Item Hierarchies from Financial Statement Versionu201D.

2. After that transaction CXNP to create from a Consolidation COA a group COA.

3. Link the operational chart of accounts in OB13 to the group chart of accounts.

4. Transaction OCCI activate data transfer to EC-CS (company consolidation, create datastream).

Anything else that I need to do regarding GL/FS accounts?

    Hello

    Can I transfer transaction data from FI to EC-CS (with transaction CXNM) when I only have an operational COA in FI and in EC-CS the FS item hiearchy (created from financial statement version)? How does the system know that GL account relates to a specific FS item?

      I opened a message with SAP. They said:

      the subsequent transfer of the FI documents to EC-CS with realtime

      update is possible with transaction CXNM.

      The assignment of GL accounts to group accounts (OB13) and the assignment of group accounts to FS Items (CXNF and CXN2) are necessary.

      Please also take care that the Consolidation Units have to be

      integrated with the Company Codes (Tr. CXNT).

    Hello Arjan,

    Here are the answers to you your 4 questions:

    1) Yes, CX16 you can maintain FS items,

    2) Yes, but GCoA is not necessary (it is optional depending upon requirement. Usually used by MNCs having company codes in different countries with different local CoAs.)

    3) Yes but depends on question # 2

    4) Yes OCCI for activation of real time update.

    Goodluck!
