  3. Continue creating the traditional financial statement by following the steps in the following sections.

Use the Financial statement form to design a row for a traditional financial statement. You can design a row either at the same time that you set up a traditional financial statement, or at another time.

  1. Click General ledger > Setup > Financial statement (traditional) > Financial statement (traditional).

  2. In the upper pane, select the traditional financial statement to design rows for.

  3. Click the General tab, and then select the primary dimension set to use on the traditional financial statement.

  5. To insert a page break after each primary dimension set on the traditional financial statement, select the Page break per primary dimension set check box.

  6. On the Setup tab, you can select a row definition for the primary dimension set. If you selected a secondary dimension set, you can also select a row definition for the secondary dimension set.

    • Total line – Print total rows, or both total rows and account numbers, for main accounts that have a main account type of Total.

Use the Financial statement form to design a column for a traditional financial statement. You can design a column either at the same time that you set up a traditional financial statement, or at another time.

Each column is defined by a column type. Some column types, such as Primary dimension set code, are used for naming purposes only. Some column types, such as Current, determine how information is printed. Other column types, such as Calculation, are used to calculate information.

  1. Click General ledger > Setup > Financial statement (traditional) > Financial statement (traditional).

  2. In the upper pane, select the traditional financial statement to design columns for.

  3. In the lower pane, click Add to add a line for the first column on the traditional financial statement. A column number is assigned automatically in the Column field.

  4. In the Name field, enter a name for the column. This name is displayed as the column header on the financial statement.

  5. In the Column type field, select the type of column. For more information about the column types, see Financial statement setup (form).

  6. You can create additional column types, and then specify their order by clicking the Up and Down buttons.

    To specify criteria for accounts and financial dimensions for the selected column type, click Select.

  7. You can enter additional information for each column by using the fields on the Setup, Formatting, and Transactions tabs.

  8. For columns that have a column type of Calculation, enter the calculation expression on the Calculation tab.

After you set up all the rows and columns, you can generate the traditional financial statement. For more information, see Generate, print, and export a traditional financial statement.
