Difference of balance in balance sheet report & Business area wise report from same t code

Balances are different if enter business area, & if I execute the report with out entering any business area. Transaction code S_ALR_87012284 - Balance Sheet / Profit and Loss Statement.

The difference amount to be considered as data entry made with out using business area?

    It is not told that which SAP version you are in. If you are not in ECC version, certain items during posting will not capture Business area (automatic generated postings such tax, payables, etc.). In such case, before preparing the reporting statements, you have to run the business area adjustment programs such as F.5D/F.5E etc.

    If you are in ECC Version, using business area scenario and document splitting, you can capture the business area in the posting real-time so that all postings have business area information.

    Hi Shamulheq

    While working with business area you must first recognize that they are not company code dependent and can be used cross-company. Also depending on the SAP release you are working with postings to Business Area may not 100% guarantee, since there are cases where rules or standard SAP is not available and line items posted will be carried out without BA. For SAP releases not using the NEW GL, the setting up of adjustments accounts and monthly execution of adjustment programs would provide the vehicle to relate and adjust any missing BA at B/S and P/L level. If you are using NEW GL the document splitting would help to set the rules where every single line item would get a business area.

    I assume that you are using the classic GL. The execution of T code S_ALR_87012284 - Balance Sheet / Profit and Loss Statement without business area retrieves all posting entered for any given company code regardless the account was posted with or without business area, this can be clearly displayed when you select the radio button for Classic Navigation. If you filter by Business Area, then the report will isolate the output data accordingly (The balances should be smaller). When using the classic GL you have to make sure that the financial statement version you use to execute the report, includes that the technical (Adjustment accout) account(s) that is used for the adjustment programs, so the correction to buisness areas is also included.

    In conlcusion I think you have to make all this considerations, in order to better understand where the differences come from.

    Hope this helps.
