Reverse the sign +/- for P&L structure regards income, expenses and costs.

Hi forum

I recently facing a financial issue regarding reverse (ONLY) for displaying and visualization the reverse of the sign for (TOTAL AMOUNT OF INCOME, EXPENSES AND COST) into P&L Structure.

The requirement is watching in positive the income and the expenses and cost must show the negative sign, and the question is there is possible watching the P&L Structure in this mode? into transaction F.01.

Regards

    You can control the sign of groups of accounts in a financial statement verions using the Sign Reversal indicator when building or changing your financial statement version in FSE2. I set the sign reversal indicator for the Liability and Equity sections and in the P&L for in all sections other than those that only contain expense, this would be revenue and all rollup groups like EBIT or Net Earnings.

      Hi Jeff

      Thank you very much indeed for sending your response, pleate take a look with reading this SAP message below because this seems like there is not possible changing the sign to show those items with the revers sign.

      Change of sign (+/-)

      This reverses the +/- sign for this item when preparing the total. The reversal has no affect on the dependent items and is limited to the item specified. This function does not have any influence on the calculation of the total.

      Use

      This field is only used by the G/L account information system (financial statement analysis). It does not effect the program RFBILA00.

      Hi again.

      I was checking into OB58 t code regarding customization the next message for Change of sign (+/-) So what is the correct way to use this functionality over each position in becase SAP declares in some displaying message.

      Example

      Revenue is generally displayed in the general ledger as a negative number. By selecting this field, the sales are displayed as a positive number.

      Regards
