Goal

How do you keep Account level data and the FEM Balances data in sync with the correct signage?  For example, say both in Standard GAAP format (Revenue, Liabilities, and Equity as -ve and Assets and Expense as +ve). For account table mapping rules, should all Asset/ Expense columns be debited and Liability/Income/Equity columns be credited in the mapping rules?

When aggregating from Account tables to FEM_Balances, do the mapping rules consider the existing signage in the account table? If so, in order to maintain the same Standard GAAP signage in FEM Balances, should Liability, Income, and Equity columns be debited and Asset and Expense columns be credited in the aggregation mapping rule?
