You need to make sure that there is a new validation entity for the Parent and that it is last in the sequence for the validation entity group, so that it consolidates after the Base entities are consolidated.
You are right. There is a validation entity. But under that 1000s of entities. Bust just interested only in 4. We filtered to calculate the accounts only for these 4 entities. So I just want to see for each account what is the combined contribution at the parent level.
You can create a validation entity group to just consolidate only the 4 or consolidate the Parent.
