Time Dimension for Financial Year reporting


Hi Experts,

We are doing legal consoliation setup in BPC 7 MS. We have Fiscal year as Apr-Mar for the legal entities with YTD Application.

Since Apshell delivers Jan to Dec for the Time hierarchy, I would like to know what things need to be changed for Setting up time dimension as Apr-Mar, what would be the impact/ changes to be made for Balance carry forward.

As one solution, we followed one How to Document:

and created a parallel time hierarchy with FYApr-FYJun as FYQ1.........FYJan-FYMar as FYQ4. Any idea, how would the balance carryforward will take Apr as the first period for the purpose of Balance carry forward in this case? On another note, we noticed that these parallel time memberes are not available for Input (only reporting).

Thanks in Advance
