  1. Initial screen

You have the following options when in the selection screen:

  • Annual report structure
    Here you enter the name of the annual report structure (previously known as a financial statement version).
  • Program mode
    The only mode is the structure mode. You can use this to display or change the annual report structure. The planning and translation modes will be available after Release 3.0B.
  • Display <-> Change
    Determines whether the structure is shown in change or display mode.
  • Key assignment
    If you select automatic/>, the keys (previously known as financial statement keys) are automatically allocated to the items. The manual function allows you to allocate the keys yourself as was previously the case.

  1. Display

The annual report structure is presented onscreen as a tree structure. The nodes on the tree are either items or account intervals. The following basic functions are available in the system for displaying or changing these objects:

  • Expand/ Compress
    By making a double click on the plus or minus sign that stands in front of each node, you can either expand (show sub-nodes) or compress (hide sub-nodes) them.
  • Set section
    The larger the tree, the more difficult it is to gain an overview of the nodes and the longer it takes to create the tree on-screen. You can use the function Edit -> Set section to select whichever section of the tree you need to view; the rest of the tree is then not displayed, while these nodes and their sub-nodes are displayed.
  1. Changes

To generate or change an annual report structure, you can use the following system functions:

  • Create item
    Place the cursor on the item for which you want to create dependent or non-dependent items and then select Create item. In contrast to the old maintenance transaction, you do not have to enter the item keys (previously financial statement keys) manually, if you have set the key assignment to be automatic in the selection screen.
  • Create account
    You allocate accounts to an item by placing the cursor on the item in question and then selecting Create account. A popup appears, in which you enter the account intervals and the debit and credit assignments (the standard procedure). You receive this popup when you have created an account for an item and then made adouble-click on the account.
  • Maintaining texts for an item
    By making a double-click on an item, you receive a popup in which can maintain texts for the control heading, footing and the graduated totals.
  • Special items
    You do not have to manually allocate special items. When setting up a new annual report structure which has so far had no special items allocated, an item is created in the annual report structure for every special item the first time you maintain each of these items. Once an item has been designated a special item, this designation cannot later be changed. Special items are displayed in a different color in the tree structure.
  • An already-existing annual report structure may be incompatible with the old maintenance transaction in the following case:
    If two special items have been allocated to a single item, when these items are maintained using the new maintenance transaction, an extra item is created directly after the original item. One of the two special items is then allocated to this new item.
    In a structure that has been maintained with the old transaction, the special items 'Balance sheet profit' and 'Balance sheet loss' were both allocated to item '20140000 Balance sheet profit/loss'.
    When the new transaction for this structure is called up, a completely new item (e.g. 'Balance sheet profit/loss 1') is created directly after the '20140000 Balance sheet profit/loss' item. The special item 'Balance sheet loss' is allocated to the first 20140000 item and the special item 'Balance sheet profit' is allocated to the 'Balance sheet profit/loss 1' item.
    However, this does not change the display of the balance sheet (e.g. in RFBILA00)
  • Deleting items
    You delete items or accounts from the structure by placing the cursor on the item/account and selecting the Delete button.
  • Selecting items
    You can select or deselect individual nodes with the Select +/- button. To select a block of nodes, first select the first node of that block and then place the cursor on the last node of that block and select Edit -> Select block -> from the menu. You can delete all your selections at any stage during this process by simply selectingEnter.
  • Reassigning items
    You can reassign items or accounts by selecting the nodes to be reassigned, then placing the cursor on the target node and finally selecting the Reassign button. In the popup that appears, you can choose whether you want to assign the node under or next tothe target node.
  • Contra items
    If there is group of accounts whose overall balance you want to be displayed under a different item, depending on whether it is a debit or a credit balance, you must define a debit/credit shift between two items.
    Note that you cannot do this unless no accounts have been allocated to either item OR that exactly the same accounts are allocated to both items (on the debit side with one item and on the credit side with the other).
  • To define a contra item, select one of the two items, place the cursor on the other and select Edit -> Debit/credit shift -> Define. In the popup that appears, you can specify which of the two items should bethe debit and which should be the credit item. You can delete a debit/ credit shift by placing the cursor on one of the two contra items and selecting Edit -> Debit/credit shift -> Delete.
