 Question 5. How does the 'Number of Days to Balance' processing option work, and what happens when the number is exceeded?

 Question 9: If the Statistical History Refresh (R03B16(A)) has not been run since, for example 2008, would the Statistics Annual Close program (R03B161) need to be run multiple times, once for each fiscal year?  Is there a sequence of events to correct the data?
 Question 10: Is it possible to run Statistical History report R03B16A by company CO or KCO?
 Question 11: Is it possible to change the processing options of Stats History Refresh (R03B16A)? I have heard that it is recommended not to change them. Would you please clarify why?

 Question 13: The second processing option on the Summary Record tab of Statistical History Refresh (R03B16A)’s processing options is set to the last date of our current fiscal year for the R03B16A version we run daily.

 Question 14: Why is it not recommended to use data selection when running Stats History Refresh (R03B16A)? Does the UBE not read it?
 Question 16: What are the criteria used by Stats History Refresh (R03B16A) to update or group the records in the A/R Statistical Summary (F03B16S) table based on the records in the A/R Statistical History (F03B16) table?

 Question 1. How and when is the Ending Balance (ENBL) field calculated?
 Question 2. We currently use the Avg Sales method. If we change to Count back, will the system automatically recalculate the DSO statistic for previous periods as well using the count back method?
