Question on ACCTYPE property

51 Views

I am using BPC for legal consolidations and have come across a question on the ACCTYPE property. Here on the forum I have found an explanation saying that

ACCTYPE INC is saved with the opposite sign to the database and aggregated to the OLAP cube

ACCTYPE LEQ is saved with the opposite sign to the database and not aggregated to the OLAP cube

ACCTYPE EXP is saved as entered to the database and aggregated to the OLAP cube

ACCTYPE AST is saved as entered to the database and aggregated to the OLAP cube

The questions I have are:

1) Aggregation

Our application is set as a YTD application, so I assume that INC and EXP are NOT aggregated, is that correct?

2) system usage of ACCTYPE

Where is the ACCTYPE actually used (apart from when saving data to the database and displaying data in Excel) by the system or, in other words, would I be able to build an application with only accounts of ACCTYPE EXP and AST? As this is for a legal consolidation we do make us of currency conversion and other business rules.

Thanks
