SAP Business Bydesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center and Reports view.
  2. Open report Financial Statements - Plan/Actual/Forecast.
  3. Run the report, you can see field Forecast is empty.


You can't find the data because financial forecasting has not yet been scoped in. Open the project itself and at the "Questions" step, under Financial and Management Accounting->Management Accounting->Financial Planning you will see that the question for financial forecast is not in scope.


Scope the question "Do you want to use financial forecast for procurement?".

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center and Implementation Projects view.
  2. Select the project and select Edit Project Scope.
  3. Select Next to the step of Questions.
  4. Expand Financial and Management Accounting->Management Accounting->Financial Planning.
  5. Check the flag of question "Do you want to use financial forecast for procurement?".
  6. Save your changes.
