Balance Sheet Actual Report


Return to Balance Sheet Overview

This report shows financial amounts that are stored in the Balance Sheet cube. It focuses on the actual figures and compares these with other versions. Amounts can be shown in local currency or converted into one of the target currencies. 

Report Heading

The screenshot below points out the heading area of the Balance Sheet Actual report. The report heading updates dynamically as various reporting options are selected. The logo can be changed in Administration; see Configuring Design Elements for more on report design.

Note: due to technical limitations, the header is omitted from the report when exporting to PDF. This issue may be resolved in a future release of Jedox Suite.

Cell Locking

Data entry is only possible when a single legal entity and the local currency are selected. Cell locking prevents the entry of data in fields that draw on multiple sources.

In the Balance Sheet Model, data entry is generally possible when no other Jedox Models are installed. However, if Jedox’s Profit and Loss model is installed, then cell locking logic will be activated, as the data fields are linked across the Models. 

Every account in the BS Account dimension contains both the PCalculation attribute, which defines the rule that is implemented on the element, and PCalculationDependencies attribute, which defines the source cube of the transferred data. When information is stored in these attributes, cell locking is activated in the planning reports and data cannot be entered.

For example, in the first screenshot below, element 311320 – Total revenue (entry) contains information for PCalculation and PCalculationDependencies. Thus, the planning report will NOT allow values to be written to the database.
