# Create Calculation Accounts

Calculation Accounts are defined in Maintain/Account Structure/Define. Use the check box Calculation Account to define an account as a Calculation Account.

Note the following when you work with Calculation Accounts:

- A calculation account must be defined as a statistical account.
- A calculation account does not have to be inserted in a form.
- The values on a calculation account can be stored with journal type and dimensions.
- If a calculation account is specified with for example an extended dimension 1, level "2", then the values have to be stored with dimension codes on exactly that level when you run a calculation report. Be aware that if you store percentage figures on dimensions, the total might sum up to more than 100%. We recommend that you store key figures or parts of key ratios, for example a numerator or a denominator, which can be used as a basis for a key ratio calculation.
- A calculation account cannot be a summation account.
