There is no transfer of retained earnings per period in BPCS unless your period table consists of only one period. However, retained earnings by period is equal to the sum of all P&L accounts. Therefore, if you make an account inquiry and you select all your P&L accounts for any given period or period range, the balance of those accounts will be equal to the retained earnings amount for the same period range. Likewise, if you go into FRW and create a Balance Sheet, you would need a line in your equity section probably labeled "Retained Earnings YTD or YTD Earnings". This line will be made of the balance of ALL P&L accounts. Otherwise, your Balance Sheet will be out of balance.
