You control the level of detail and whether fiscal period or cumulative amounts appear. You can also compare ledger types from different fiscal years or specific G/L dates.
Using processing options, you define:
Which two ledger types to compare
How the system calculates the differences between the two ledger types (visible only in the three-column format)
Which sequence the system uses to display accounts, for example, business unit.object or business unit.subsidiary.
Which format (two-, three-, or four-column) sequence you use to compare your budgets online. This program performs faster if you choose only one format (instead of a sequence of formats) for your comparison.
Online comparisons show information from the Account Balances table (F0902).
