Multiple Dimensions in SAP Business One

Dimensions configured in the system provide customers with multiple views of an expense and revenue analysis. In SAP Business One, you may distribute the costs from 5 different dimensions and analysis costs more accuracy and comprehensive.

At first, we need to apply multiple dimensions. Choose Administration > System Initialization > General Settings > Cost Accounting and click “Use Multidimensions”. Here we may choose to display all distribution rules in a unified column or separate columns.


To define the required dimensions, go to Financials > Cost Accounting > Table of Cost Centers and Distribution Rules. Then go to Financials > Cost Accounting > Dimensions to apply dimensions.


Finally, when creating documents, such as AP Invoice, you may choose the dimensions and rules in “Distri.Rule” column.
