SEM-BCS Statistical FS Items (Statistical: Balance and Statistical: Flow)

Former Member

Hi,

SEM-BCS 4.0 and SEM-BCS 6.0 both have 2 types of Statistical FS Item (Financial Statement item); "Statistical: Balance" and "Statistical: Flow".

I note that these are treated differently, e.g. in Balance Carryforward task, Statistical: Balance are carried forward automatically while Statistical: Flow are not.

My question is, what is the difference between these statistical item types?

And what are they (or could they be) used for?

Hi,

I'll try to explain you like the following:

Balance is a value that is derived from beginning balance plus movement. Flow is the movement itself.

Trial balance is an example of balance, while movement type is an example of flow.

When you do balance carry forward, system add all the flow type that you define to make a balance, and carry forward the balance only.

Hope it helps.

regards,
