Global Assumptions

With Global Assumptions, renumbered subaccounts are handled differently depending on if it is in the global assumptions file or a target file.

When renumbering subaccounts in the global assumptions file, Strategic Finance updates the global assumptions export list to include the renumbered account.

Renumbering in the Global Assumptions File

When renumbering subaccounts in the global assumptions file, Strategic Finance updates the global assumptions export list to include the renumbered account.

Renumbering in Global Assumptions Target Files

When renumbering subaccounts in target files, there are two circumstances:

  • If the target file has not yet been populated with global data, but Summary Information lists a global file.

    See Specifying File Summary Data Displayed in Reports, renumbering occurs as it would in any other case. However:

    • If you do not select Add subaccounts to target file, you receive an error message indicating that an account identified in the global map does not exist in the target file.

      SeeSetting Global Assumptions Options , you receive an error message indicating that an account identified in the global map does not exist in the target file.

    • If you do select Add subaccounts to target file, the new account in the global file is added to the target file.

  • If a target file has received global data and you renumber a subaccount that has received global data, Strategic Finance warns that a mapped account is about to be renumbered.

    • If you cancel, the task is aborted.

    • If you continue, it breaks the global assumption mapping to the original account number. You can verify this on the Accounts view by red highlights in the input cell. There is a general warning message that there is a problem regarding global assumptions.
