Removing the top calculated row in Financial Planning of SAP PPM

Dear All,

In my Financial Planning I have Costs and Revenue views but in the first row of the ALV it sums all the figures, which doesn't make any sense. Can we remove that row in any way by configuration or settings ?

    Dear AP,

    with the new ALV in Financial Planning Screen the functionality of the "Total" is available.

    If you absolutely need to see the subtotals yet to suppress the totals line, I can unfortunately only suggest that you revert to the "old" planning screens (as opposed to the ALV). This option is open to you and is controlled via PPM global setting 0002/0016.

    There also exists a SAP note for Modification to allow to suppress the sum in financial planning screen.
    But this will completely suppress summation in the financial planning ALV (i.e. it will not just turn it off for the total line but also for all subtotals). This is a technical restriction and is unavoidable: we as an application have no way to switch off one and leave the other. Portfolio Management application uses for this functionality the generic ABAP List Viewer tool and is limited by the restrictions of this tool. Unfortunately, the specific case where subtotals are required but the total should be suppressed is not foreseen by the current ABAP ALV standard. This is why the note specifically mentions this restriction.

    If you would like to implement this note please open an incident because this is a modification limited to pilot-customers.

    Best regards,

      Dear Judith,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Master Switch 0002/0016 didn't make any difference in PPM 6.0. However I do need the sub total Category and View wise (so I believe the note is irrelevant for me).

      This in really needed but not the grand total, where system adds revenues with expenditure, which doesn't make any sense.

      Any further suggestion ?
