  2. Go to Business Analytics work center. 
  3. Go to Design Reports view.
  4. Open Profit Overview by Key Figure.

The corresponding financial reporting structure (the contribution margin scheme in the report) has been uploaded only in Chinese language - even at the header level in English login, there's no description, and if you edit, there are no texts available.

The financial reporting structures can be checked as follows:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Open the activity list and open activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination.
  4. Click Edit financial reporting structures.


You need to translate the corresponding reporting structure to English. If the financial structure nodes don't have a corresponding node translated in target language, then texts cannot get picked in the report.
