Configuring the document type

Dear All,

When configuring the document type

1) In what cases do we need to have the

Inversion u2013 0 / 1 / 2 selected.

Pls give a scenario for each inversion option,

for ex., scenario for - No Automatic Inversion etc..

2) Pls give a scenario for the usage of Clearing Cons unit. Do we need to define a seperate item for this

or can we give the Clearing B/S item for this as well?

Many Thanks

    1. Inversion is for documents where they are to be reversed in the subsequent period. In the cases where P&L accounts are used it may be necessary for these to not be inverted in the first period of the a new fiscal year.

    Manual or automatic entries of an accrual nature are typical for automatic inversion.

    2. where profit centers or business areas are assigned the role cons unit, it may be that these are not in balance or need not be balanced for reporting. However BCS requires cons units to be in balance and therefore provides the option to "force" these to balance using a certain account assigned here or in the selected items (or both). As this is optional it may be the BS clearing or it may remain blank, or any other account.
