3. 26) What is an Auto Reversing Journal? If we create a journal as Auto Reversing Journal. 27) How will you perform Currency Translations? First we have to create all the currencies in the Meta Data Item called currencies. version We can do in 11 versions but some problems in load balancer 25) . the journal will posted in the next period by reversing the Debit and Credit. for that purpose. we will create recurring templates.1. What is a Recurring Journal? Some Journals we use repeatedly. By using the recurring templates.5) 6) 7) 8) Dark yellow Light green Dark green Pink - modified but not saved allow allocation read only (parent data) invalid intersection/POV 19) Implementation phases 1) Requirement gathering 2) Implementation and infrastructure 3) Development 4) User acceptance test (QA) 5) Go live/production 20) When we create a application in HFM then two HFM objects will create 1) HSV data create 2) HSX server 21) Can we take 2 different POV’s report Yes we can take report 22) Can we take 2 grids in report Yes we can 23) Can we take 2 application report Yes we can create but it is complex reporting 24) How many consolidations we can do Only 1 consolidation in 9. we will create recurring Journals. So. Then we have to perform currency translations in Explore data module by using .

we will perform Process Management.NODATA . And we should have the security authority to create journals. we cannot post a Journal. we should have the “Review Supervisor” Security authority. Consolidate All : any Parent entity regardless of its status. 29) Sometimes. 30) What is Consolidation A. Consolidate All with Data option is available for any parent entity regardless of its status. Consolidation 31) How do you enable Rules to customize consolidation ? Application Settings -> consolidation Rules -> Y 32) What is Translation ? It is Currency translation happens when a parent entity's default currency is different from a child entity's default currency. runs when you choose Translate or Consolidate. Translation. In Explore Data Module. 30) Which sub routines of Rules will execute when you run consolidations ? Calculate. 34) What is the difference between consolidate.NODATA are skipped. 33) What is Adjustment ? Adjusment is to correct the data. consolidate all and consolidate all with the data ? consolidate : only entities that require logic or consolidation are updated by the system. What will be the Reason? In Entity Dimension.custom dimensions and value dimension. And the period in which we created the journal should be kept open. It is done by Journals at value dimension member Entity currency Adjs and Parent curr Adjs. we should check the “alove adjustment “ property. Consolidation is aggregating the Base level entities amounts with the Parent level entities amounts. 28) How will you perform Review Process? To perform Review process.

report. and period. Select the check box next to each period that you want to open. From the Year drop-down list. Select Extract IC Transactions. year. or click Browse to find the Entity and Partner members. With the ability to view detail transaction at any time. UnPosted. 39) what is Tolerance amount ? Tolerance amount is small discrepancies in the amounts in Intercompany Transactions. select a year for the period. Matched. select the scenario. Posted. MisMatched. 38) How to extract Intercompany Transactions ? In the Browser View. Select to include one or more of the following options in the extract process: UnMatched. From the Scenario drop-down list. you can reconcile intercompany account differences frequently and thus minimize their impact on the closing cycle. expand Tasks and select Extract Tasks. what is the Reason ? Cause: IC Period is not opened.are also consolidated. Reason Codes. expand Tasks and select IC Transaction Tasks. Select Manage IC Periods. select a scenario for the period. and reconcile intercompany account differences. Enter the names of the Entity and Partner dimension members. 35) how can you cancel consolidation ? HFM Web client -> Administration -> running Tasks -> click on the Red button 36) what is ICP ? The Intercompany Partnership Dimension provides an efficient way to identify. 37) You are not able to load ICP tansactions. From the Point of View bar. 40) What is the difference between switch sign for and switch type for and in which dimension it exists It exists in custom dimension Switch sign for: It is ticked to change ● ASSET to LIABILITY ● LIABILITY to ASSET ● EXPENSE to REVENUE ● REVENUE to EXPENSE .

the dynamic member list automatically reflects the changes by reapplying the user-defined criteria. period year and click lock 45) How do you eliminate intercompany transactions? Intercompany transactions are eliminated through plug account. 42) What are the types of Journals Balanced Unbalanced Balanced by entity Balanced: All the Debits and Credits will be balanced Unbalanced: Debits and Credits will not be balanced Balanced by entity : Debits and Credits for particular entity will be balanced 43) what is data lock A user-controlled mechanism that prevents changes to data according to specified criteria. such as period or scenario 44) How do you lock the data Select Lock/Unlock IC Entities and Select Scenario.● BALANCE to FLOW ● FLOW to BALANCE Switch type for: It is ticked to change ● ASSET to EXPENSE ● EXPENSE to ASSET ● LIABILITY to REVENUE ● REVENUE to LIABILITY ● BALANCE to FLOW ● FLOW to BALANCE 41) What is dynamic member list As dimension members are added and deleted. Steps Create plug account in account dimension Tick the check box called IS ICP in account dimension Tick the check box called IS ICP in Entity dimension Then automatically the difference between the Intercompany transactions will be transferred to plug account .

enter data. and maintain metadata in this tier. Then it should be mapped with HFM. The Hyperion Financial Management Web client contains all functionality available in the Windows client with the exception of security administration. So the data should be downloaded from ERP and loaded into Upstream tool like FDM and ODI etc. You can access the Web-enabled portions of Hyperion Financial Management in this tier. You can display data and metadata. HFM directly cannot take the data from ERP packages. . Middle tier ●The middle tier contains the domain intelligence and connections to the relational database. 46) What is HFM ARCHITECTURE? Hyperion Financial Management is designed to operate as a multitier system. Database tier ●The data tier contains the relational database and all Hyperion Financial Management data and metadata.45) How do you load the data into HFM. And then load that into HFM. Web tier ●The Web server tier contains the Web server. Client tier ●The client tier contains the user interface and the ability to communicate with the application tier.
