Generating Consolidated Cash Flow Statement after Consolidating Investments?


Dear All,

I need to prepare Consoloidated Cash Flow statement after performing Consolidation on Investments. I am a techincal guy and new to the functional side of BPC.

Can any one throw some light on this? On how to prepare the consolidated CF statement? I have done consolidation of investments for BS accounts alone. For consolidated CF statment, do I need to use P&L accounts along with BS account? Or, is the consolidated CF statement derived from P&L accounts alone? How can I derive the cash flow(consolidated) from such accounts?

I have gone thru formal BPC training. But, still staring at how to do this as this involves functional side?

Would appreciate your help on this. Any hints/URL to any info/article on this would be greatly appreciated. Have done google on this and I can see lots of sample consolidated cash flow statement. But, I am unable to connect the dots - starting from ACCOUNT dimention, setting up the data, etc...

Thank you.
