Organizational structures can change for many reasons, including acquisitions, disposals, mergers, and reorganizations. To support organizational changes, Financial Management uses a system account, Active, to reflect the active or inactive consolidation status of a child into its parent. The Active account acts as a filter of the entity hierarchy. The Active account is an intercompany account that stores data at the parent level and uses the ICP dimension to store information about children. For an ICP member that corresponds to a child of a parent, the Active account indicates to the system whether the child should be considered as an active consolidation member for the current year, scenario, and time period. Children that correspond to ICP members for which the Active account is equal to 0 are considered to be inactive children and are not consolidated. Children that correspond to ICP members for which the Active account is equal to 1 are considered to be active children and are consolidated. Active account values can be viewed or changed in data grids. Similarly, changes to active child data affect the parent, while changes to inactive child data does not affect the parent.
