Financial statements use row definitions and column definitions to present information about the financial status of a business at specific point in time, and to list revenues, expenses, and income.
We recommend that you use Management Reporter for Microsoft Dynamics ERP to create, maintain, deploy, and view financial reports. Management Reporter lets you design financial reports based on ledger accounts and financial dimensions, drill down to transaction-level detail, and use web-based report viewing. For more information about how to print financial reports by using Management Reporter, see Management Reporter for Microsoft Dynamics ERP.
To create a traditional financial statement, you must follow these steps:
Create a financial dimension set
Create a row definition
Design the financial statement row structure
Create the financial statement column definition
Print the report
The following topics provide information about setting up traditional financial statements.
