How to assign ACCTYPE for CASH FLOW accounts?


Dear all:

A few questions in regards of managing CASH FLOW accounts in my Account Dim:

1) How do you assign ACCTYPE for CASH FLOW accounts, which use accounts both from Balance Sheet and Income Statement? For Balance Sheet, It is clear what AST (Assets) or LEQ (Liab or Equity) is, as well as for Income Statement that INC (Income) and EXP (Expense) accounts are easy to figure out. Do I assign ACCTYPE for CF accounts by definitions of each ACCTYPE? For instance, if I need positive and non-aggregative, I use AST, and if I want positive and aggregative, I use EXP?

2) What happens to the Parent accounts that don't have any ACCTYPE? Is there a default setting for ACCTYPE?

I am playing around with my ACCTYPE under ACCOUNT Dim, but the complex database is giving me a difficult time in finding relations/patterns for accounts with different combination of ACCTYPEs.Therefore, I am hoping someone else can give me a pointer.

Thank you! Have a great day!
