In the Dimension balance form, you can view the dimension balances for the selected period and for two different value types. For each column group, you can select the following value types:

  • Actual costs

  • Budget costs

  • Basic plan costs

  • Flexible plan costs

  • Target costs

NoteNote

If you select Basic plan costs, Flexible plan costs, or Target costs, you must select a budget model.

The Total values section consists of two areas:

  • The total of primary costs, secondary costs, and total costs

  • The dimensions that these costs are posted to

Primary costs are posted to ledger accounts. Secondary costs are generated only in Cost accounting.

For the selected dimension, you can display cost, service, and calculation transactions by clicking Transactions. To display cost balances, click Cost balance.
