Users have traditionally needed multiple ledgers for external and internal reporting — General Ledger (G/L), Profit Center Accounting (PCA) Ledger, Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) Ledger, Special Purpose Ledger (SPL), Cost of Sales Ledger, and more — to meet various accounting, controlling, and reporting requirements. Traditional ledger reporting functions met the specific accounting requirements but caused reconciliation issues, which in turn created an additional ledger, the Reconciliation Ledger.
