Opening balances issue after running the consolidation


I am running consolidation and noticed that when I see the Closing balances eliminations, they are happening correctly. But when the same comes to the opening balances elimination, all the data in the Input audit id becomes zero and gets posted into a Elimination ID instead of getting the reverse posting.

Below are the screen shots:

Please suggest.

Hi Arnold,

Thanks for the help.

The issue was in the Integration rule "I" (in Elimination and Adjustments) I have wrongly defined rules only for closing flow, later now included the opening flow as well.

Hence after running the consolidation, the opening balances in the group currency in the group scope became zero.

With regards to the conversions, as I am copying opening balances in both the LC and group currency, I have maintained the conversion rule for Opening flow "AS_IS". So what ever has been copied in USd will remain the same with out conversion at the time of consolidation.
