Movement Dimension

The Movement dimension captures the movement details of an account. By default, the system provides the members in the Movement dimension to move data.


Oracle recommends that you do NOT make any changes to this dimension.

The Movement dimension is used to perform the following tasks:

  • Move data:
    • Between tax schedules
    • From the Balance Sheet/Income Statement to tax accounts, such as Tax Automation.
    • Calculate opening balances, closing balances, and FX to CTA calculations
  • Store Tax Automation logic
  • Store RTA configuration

When you create an application, the Movement dimension is created by default with seeded members, and optionally adds system members based on the features that you enabled. During application creation, the system creates cash flow members and hierarchies for Cash Flow Reporting in the Movement and Account dimensions. The following members are created:

  • FCCS_Movements
  • TRCS_CbCR Movements
  • TRCS_TaxLossCreditTotal
  • TRCS_System Movement

You can create additional user-defined members under the Movement dimension to run consolidation and translations for these members. For instructions, see Customizing the Movement Dimension Hierarchy.


The following reserved system members are created when Ownership Management is enabled, and must not be used for data input:
  • TRCS_TLCOwnPlaceHolder
  • TRCS_TARFOwnPlaceHolder
  • TRCS_CurPayOwnPlaceholder
  • TRCS_TempDiffOwnPlaceholder
  • TRCS_RegionalTempDiffOwnPlaceholder
  • TRCS_OwnPlaceholder
  • TRCS_DTNROwnPlaceholder
