Each week, I will be sharing a Management Reporter tip for Microsoft Dynamics ERP. If you are not familiar with Management Reporter, it is a real-time financial reporting application designed to empower information workers to quickly and easily create, generate, secure, and publish financial statements, such as Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, balance sheets, and cash flow reports. This first post is a calculations tip on Change Base Row.

Change Base Row in Management Reporter

Change Base Row (CBR) is a format code found in the row definition that allows the report to calculate a percentage of net sales or another row. Seeing a percentage of sales can be valuable if you want to compare your financials to another company or division to see how well you are doing, regardless of the revenue amounts.
