Testing Files before Consolidating

After you have set up the consolidated company and the business units, and you have exported the necessary data, you are ready to do the consolidation – that is, to transfer the figures from the business units to the consolidated company.

Before you do so, it is a good idea to check whether there are differences between the basic information in the business units and in the consolidated company. There are two reports for this purpose – one for testing a database and one for testing a file.

To Test Files before Consolidating:

  1. On the menu bar, click File, Company, Open. Select the consolidated company from the list.

  2. Open the Business Unit List window.

  3. Click Functions, Test File.

  4. Enter the name of the file to be tested, and then click Print.

The report is similar to the Test Database report.
