Updated: July 20, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

After you set up a consolidated legal entity, you can use the Consolidate form to transfer all of the transactions in a selected period from subsidiary legal entities to the consolidated legal entity. The consolidated legal entity and the subsidiary legal entities must use the same currency. Before you transfer transactions, you must select the Use for financial consolidation process check box on the General FastTab in the Legal entities form.

  1. Click General ledger > Periodic > Consolidate > Consolidate [Online].

  2. Select the Transfer transactions only check box to indicate that only transactions are transferred and consolidated. The transaction amounts are not consolidated.

  3. In the From: and To: fields in the Consolidation period field group, enter the starting and ending dates of the period for the transactions to include in the consolidation.

  4. Select the Include actual amounts check box to include general ledger journal entries when you transfer transactions.


    To transfer the budget details, select the Include budget amounts check box, and then in the From: and To: fields in the Budget models field group, select the budget models. The budget model must be the same for the consolidated and subsidiary legal entities.

  5. Click the Financial dimensions tab, and then in the Specification field, select the type of data that is transferred to the Financial dimension field of the consolidated legal entity. For example, if you select Company accounts in the Specification field for the consolidated legal entity, you can identify the subsidiary origin of each transaction in the consolidated legal entity. The other dimension information is not transferred. For more information, see Consolidate (form).

  6. In the Segment order field, enter a number to indicate the order of financial dimensions in the consolidated legal entity. Enter 0 for the dimensions that have a specification of None.


    The segment order number must be sequential for all fields for which the specification is not None.

  7. Click the Legal entities tab, and then select a subsidiary legal entity, or click New to add the subsidiary legal entity to consolidate transactions for. You can add multiple subsidiary legal entities for consolidation.

  8. Click OK to transfer the transactions.

After you transfer the subsidiary legal entity transactions to a consolidated legal entity, you can view the transactions that are transferred in the Voucher transactions form. For more information, see Voucher transactions (form). You can also generate the following reports:
