Hi! We often require a combined trial balance of our parent and sister concern companies. Both are separate companies on AX system.
Is there a way to create a report / financial statement that can merge these trial balances? Most of the accounts bear same names and ledger numbers and we want these to be summed in the result and those which are not the same have to be just added to the Trial Balance.
Thanks in advance for your support.
Good Morning iron.apologist,
You can use the Management Reporter to combine the different trial balance data.
Even if the companies share a different chart of account you can setup a report that brings the data together and allows summing them up.
We don't have management reporter. Is it possible to use financial statement in GL to achieve the same? There's an option to bring accounts from different companies but not sure how to combine them here.
The old financial statement functionality should also be able doing that.
Yet, I would recommend rather going for the management reporter because the old financial statement feature will be deprecated.
Once you upgrade to D365FO this stuff will be gone and you have to use the management reporter, which means then double work for you.
Have you been able to get this issue resolved either by using the financial statements or the management reporter?
Thanks for the follow up Dr. Ludwig. I have been trying to make it with Financial Statement since we don't have management reporter and our upgrade is not yet closer in Sight.
I am able to list the ledgers and balances in the Financial Statement for both companies but I am yet to figure out how to merge similar accounts.
Please check out the financial statements form.
In the lower part you have a transactions tab that allows you selecting the company.
If your companies share the same chart of accounts and currencies then you can simply add multiple columns and add the amounts together in a summary column.
By the way: The management reporter is available from AX2009 CU5 if you think about using it.
