Paradigm Shift for Developers

Calculation Application
Layer

Database
Layer Calculation
In traditional applications (especially from SAP), the database is largely used as a data store
mechanism only. Massive queries bring large amounts of data back to the application server
for processing. Lots of application execution time is spent in the application server looping
over records and performing exclusions, calculations, etc.

With HANA, the key to the best application performance is pushing as much of the logic
execution into the database as possible. We now “trust” the database. Keep all the data
intensive logic down in the database as SQL, SQLScript, and HANA Views.

Scenario

You want to understand the new posting logic within the accounting
component. You are interested in understanding how the journal
postings are handled from the various components and whether the
unification into a central finance limits the flexibility you have associated
with your management accounting processes.

Universal Journal Entry

 The new journal entry consists of a header (table BKPF) and the respective items (table
ACDOCA)
– There are rare cases, where entries in ACDOCA are written without a respective document header (e.g.
carry forward, corrections in migration). These entries do not represent standard business processes.
– The corresponding line items have ‘artificial document numbers’ beginning with letters (e.g. ‘A’).
 ACDOCA table contains all fields needed for G/L, CO, AA, ML, PA
 All cost elements, including secondary cost elements are G/L accounts
 Multi-GAAP capability through “RLDNR” dimension
 6 digit field for line item numbering
 23 digits for currency fields

© 2015 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved

Document Numbers in Simple Finance

 Since the system now writes only one journal entry for all of the components G/L, CO, AA,
ML, one document number is sufficient from a business point of view. The journal entry
consists of a header (BKFP) and items (ACDOCA). The respective document number
(BKPF-BELNR/ACDOCA-BELNR) must obey the legal rules of Financial Accounting. As a
consequence, the document number is dependent on the fiscal year and the company code.

 CO document numbers have not been year
ACDOCA
dependent. Material ledger document
numbers have not been dependent from the DOCLN CO_BELNR CO_BUZEI
organizational unit (e.g. company code). 000001 A00X345100 001
Both numbers did not have a legal 000002
relevance. Moreover, ACDOCA has a 6 digit

field for the document line, whereas COEP
has only a 3 digit field. This is still used in 001082 A00X345100 999

many user interfaces and reports. For 001083 A00X345101 001
compatibility reasons, SAP offers a new ..

Prima Nota in Simple Finance

 The Prima Nota is the source document that triggers the creation of Journal Entries. The
Prima Nota is the single anchor that allows e.g. to reverse the complete process triggered
by the Prima Nota.
 The Prima Nota keeps the information that has been entered to the system, before
derivations, enrichments, splits etc. take place in Accounting in order to create Journal
Entries.
 In many cases the Prima Nota is a document outside Financials. Examples are Expense
Reports, Invoices, Payroll documents.
 For posting within the Financials world a Prima Nota is needed as well.

© 2015 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved

Prima Nota per Financial Component

 For classical FI postings (FB01, FB50, FB60, FB70 etc.) the Prima Nota is still stored in
table BSEG and the corresponding Journal Entries (can be several due to the multi GAAP
capability) are written to table ACDOCA.
 For classic (manual) CO postings the Prima Nota is still written to table COEP. The
corresponding journal entries are written to table ACDOCA. A Prima Nota is written as well in
cases, where “CO” is triggered via BAPI interfaces (AWTYP <> AFRU, CATS)
 For allocation postings (assessment, settlement etc.) no Prima Nota is required and data is
written to table ACDOCA only. The allocation process has its own history management (for
example canceling an allocation journal entry)
 Material price changes (MR21) or Material Debit/Credit (MR22) create a Prima Nota in the
material ledger (tables MLHD, MLIT etc. ). The respective journal entries are posted to
ACDOCA.

Appendix Ledger – Basic Idea

Each specific ledger is self contained, has a special purpose and provides a specific view on
financial data. A ledger usually stores a lot of redundant data to other ledgers.
With Appendix Ledgers you can “staple” ledgers on top of each other, providing the different
views you need. This minimizes the data footprint and provides new flexibility for easily
creating additional views.

Appendix Ledger – Use Cases

Universal Journal  An appendix ledger stores delta values and points to
another ledger – thus providing a flexible mechanism
for adjustments and reporting.
Appendix Ledger A
Appendix Ledger B
 An important use case is for management views
“Post into closed
periods
“Distribute revenues on top of legal data.
differently on org units
for restatement
purposes”
than in legal view”  Besides creating a master record, appendix ledgers

 Reporting on the appendix ledger always includes the

purposes”
 Multiple appendix ledgers can point to the same base
ledger.
 Benefit of reduced data footprint and zero
reconciliation effort as only delta values are kept.

The new and the old Ledger master

 The Universal Journal ledgers have own
master records
 The new master record key
FINSC_LEDGER-RLDNR is technically
compatible with the FI-SL/New G/L ledger
key (T881-RLDNR)
 The FI-SL technology is used in a lot of
components (FI-SL, EC-PCA, New G/L,
Public Sector etc.).
 Parts of this technology has been enabled
for the Universal Journal ledgers. Both
“worlds” can be mapped e.g. via the
function modules G_GET_LEDGER_INFO
and G_GET_ORGANIZATIONAL_DATA.
The modules have a compatibility mode
that might help customers to leverage

values. For the depreciation areas the Posting Indicator need to be adjusted.

 The following applies to the ledger approach: The leading area of the parallel valuation also
contains the Area Posts in Realtime option.

receives the option Area Posts APC Immediately, Depreciation Periodically (or Area Posts
