The Accounting methods tab

In Business events, this tab presents the list of the methods associated with the selected Business event. Their presentation is similar to that described in the Accounting methods. In addition to the viewing options described in that section, you can:

  • Expand/collapse the Accounting methods in the list, using the toggle action link Hide all/ Show all.
  • Select a sample from the list box. The sample will display real data for the methods involved in the data flow described. Taking the example of a business event linked to 3 Accounting methods AM1, AM2, AM3, there might be a sample 1 involving methods AM1 and AM2, a sample 2 involving methods AM1 and AM3, and so on.
