Difference on P/L when running month to month and over few months

HI all

I have a question.

A client has this issue, when she runs her PL from:

  • 01/01/2011 to 31/01/2011, the Profit Period is: R699 012.98
  • 01/02/2011 to 28/02/2011, the Profit Period is R 294 664.79

However when you run it from 01/01/2011 to 28/02/2011, the profit period is:

  • January 2011: R698 539.26
  • February 2011: R294 191.07


They on 2007 and want to upgrade if this issue gets fixed. I tested it on SAP8.82 PL04 and it gives the same scenario...but when i choose life-to-date instead of year-to-date in the balance comparison in the selection criteria...the all the totals are the same whether i run it individual months or from jan - feb..over 2 months.

would that be the correct way to run it, because

  • Life to Date – to display the balance from beginning of
    company activity up to the date defined in the From field.
  • Year to Date – to display the balance from day one of
    the selected posting period up to the date defined in the From field.

Why would it show different amounts if u select one or the other?

thank you

Jerusha

Hi,

Please check whether the checbox ''Display Accounts with Amount Zero'' is checked when running the report in both the cases.

Hi,

P&L is a report consists of transaction posted to revenue accounts and expense accounts, if you run P&L until february 2011, it will show the accumulation of profit and loss from january to february 2011.
