Reversal of +/- sign in report painter

Hi everyone,

I have created an EC-PCA report using Report Painter. There are the usual coloumns Actual Data, Plan Data,

Absolute Deviation and Deviation as a percentage of plan data. In the upper part of the report rows the revenue elements are

displayed, while the cost elements are displayed below them. Since the users didn't like the revenue accounts being displayed

with a negative sign (standard), I activated the reversal of the sign for the revenue part of the rows. But this reversal

does not have any effect on the values in the coloumns showing the relative deviation, i.e. they have the wrong sign.

Is there a possibility to reverse the values in the cells defined by the rows with revenue accounts and the coloumn

of relative deviation, but leaving the values in the rows with costing accounts unaffected?

Thanx,

Fred

    Just change (reverse) the formula for that column.

    • Yes, but that would also reverse the sign folr the rows containing the cost elements, which should be unchanged.

      Meanwhile I have found the solution. The formula for the coloumn "Variance in %" - formerly: (( X002 - X003 ) / X003 ) * 100 - must be changed as follows: (( X002 - X003 ) / ABS (X003) ) * 100.

      Regards,

      Fred
