Classical PCA vs new GL in HANA Reporting

0 Kudos

Dear Experts,

I have seen several posts but I have full confusion about PCA.

What is basic customization difference between Classical pca and New GL, As per my understanding, In 0KE5, If we check that it would be classical, And 1KEK is pure classical one. But If I checked for profit center, zero balance in document splitting characteristic for gl, I don't tick in 0KE5 it is giving error. so I was forced to activate this in 0KE5 also.

Please explain for each check mark importance with different scenarios. and also let me know the new reports in New gl with respect to classical. how can we get different reports in New gl.

let me have some good links regarding this topic.

Let me know for further info.

The below link should give you an overview of the configuration and concepts of new gl:

The basic difference between classical gl and new gl is that you have the functionality of document splitting available.What is means it that you can get financial statements available below company code, eg, profit center, business area etc since these are filled in real time and the accounting entry is also balanced. You can get vendor and customer balances at the level of profit center and segment for eg, which was not available in the classical GL real time. Below are some of the replies where this topic has been discussed as well on SAP Community

Essentially you should look for New GL Reports in Information reporting under new gl in esay access.
