When data is entered in dimensional accounts and outputs are calculated, you can enter aggregate amounts at top or mid-level accounts and allocate them to the lower-level members in proportion to the lower-level values. These outputs are backsolved for inputs for the lower-level members.
For example: Sales/Stereos
Strategic Finance allocate amounts to each year in proportion to the outputs for the Current Amount value. For example, you could change the allocation of the aggregate for 2001 by entering the New Amount of 40. Strategic Finance backs into dimensional data. For example, the New Amount of 40 is divided equally into each account dimension combination for 2001.
