2284255 - You Want to Plan Financial Statements, Cost Centers and Profit Centers


You want to use the function of the financial planing tool and be able to maintain a planned profit and loss account, but you cannot find the scoping question to enable this function.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view
  3. Click on Edit Project Scope
  4. In Step 3 - Scoping expand: Financial and Management Accounting > Management Accounting
  5. Here Financial Planning is scoped.
  6. In Step 4 - Questions expand: Financial and Management Accounting > Management Accounting and highlight Financial Planning

You notice that the question: You can plan financial statements, cost centers and profit centers is missing here.


For HANA DB systems, we don't support the planning solution (Financial Planing tool and maintaining a Planned Profit and Loss Account).

For HANA DB, we have a new planning solution. You can check the documentation in Help Center by entering Planning Quick Guide in the search area.
