Uneven Time Periods

If the consolidated parent has more historical periods than the child entities, Consolidator assumes zero values in the consolidated parent, but not in child entities. You can block the non-consolidated time period data to maintain data in other time periods of the consolidated parent

See Specifying Parent Entity Characteristics.

If the consolidated parent has fewer historical periods than the child entities, only data for historical periods in the consolidated parent is included in the consolidation.

If the consolidated parent has more forecast periods than the child entities, Consolidator assumes zero values for those periods in the consolidated parent but not the child entity.

If the consolidated parent has fewer forecast periods than the child entities, Consolidator include the child entity forecast data in the residual value of the consolidated parent instead of the forecast—see Valuations with Consolidation Structures and Residual Values in Consolidated Parent Entities or Files.
