Subject: Costs not matching with sales in GTAPVIEW file

Question: Why don't the costs (computed from CM01) match with sales (computed from SF01) in the GTAPVIEW (gsdview.har) file?

Answer: SF01 includes OUTAX, which is the output taxes. This is not included in CM01, the cost side value. You have to add up the taxes and the base from the cost side and remove investment (CGDS) from CM01. Then, the balance condition will match if you add the output taxes to the CM01 total.
