2699107 - Summarization in New G/L


The note 36353 states following:
"Restrictions when using General Ledger Accounting (new) (FI-GL-FL):
When you use General Ledger Accounting (new), the system no longer supports the summarization of the fields that are totals record characteristics or document splitting characteristics in the General Ledger or Special Purpose Ledger. This is necessary because the General Ledger must be able to reproduce from the FI document."

What does this exactly mean? Is the summarization still possible in New General Ledger?
