Balance c/f of PL 12 documents

Hi SAP Experts,

I am having an issue with regard to non carry forwarding of PL 12 documents.

The scenario:

There were manual entries posted for a company in Fiscal year 2009 in PL 10 in period 003.2009. There is no automatic inversion of this document. The company got divested fully and posting level 12 documents were posted automatically through changes to consolidation group task. So for the fiscal year 2009 the balance in this company code became zero and everything tallied.

But when I am doing the Balance c/f, the PL 10 documents are carry forwarded whereas the PL12 documents are not. By design I am aware that PL12 documents are not carried forward. But in the above scenario due to this, the closing balance is not tallying with the opening balance as in the new Fiscal year I am having PL10 documents but not PL12 documents.

I can do inversion of PL 10 documents in New fiscal year but still it will be happening in period 000 and hence the opening balance will still be not matching with my closing balance.

Pl help

Thanks in advance

    Because the entity is divested (as per the master data of the cons group) the balances for all posting levels are ignored for reporting based on the virtual cube logic. This is standard BCS.

    Please try to confirm this for reporting on the associated cons groups.

    You need to un-assign your divested company from the consolidation unit hierarchy the next year after divestiture, and before the Carry forward... Actually, why do you want to perform carry forward for a company that has divested the group ?
