Alternate option for having 2 Controlling Areas


Hi Experts,

Please analyse the below business requirement and provide your valuable feedback.

Currently the business side has only one Controlling Area -1000 and all reports are built off of the Controlling Area and

not Company code. Also, all consolidated Company codes roll up to the Controlling Area 1000. Now business want's 2 different reports for there 2 major business lines. And there is no way to run a report for those 2 business lines.

Is it advisable to have 2 diffrent controlling areas. In my opinion it should not be advised and its not a best practise.

Any other way to fulfill the reporting requirement by having current controlling area only?

Can Version design be of use in this scenario ? If yes kindly throw some light on version control as well.

Thanks in Advance!
