There is not a 'separate' year-end close procedure for Analytical Accounting. Balance Brought Forward (BBF) entries are created for AA dimensions automatically as part of the GL year-end close process, if you have the AA dimensions setup to have a BBF entry created. The steps in this article will assist to check your data prior to doing the GL year-end close process to check for AA data that may cause errors during the GL year-end close process. This article will also show you how to set up the AA dimensions to have a Balance Brought Forward entry created in the new year per dimension, if desired.

Steps are also given on how to move historical data to history, which will resolve the error message below that may be experienced during the GL year-end close process: (See step 3 to resolve this message.)

You must run the consolidate transactions and transfer detail to history utility for closed years to recreate the Analytical Accounting Balances Brought Forward.
