The setting determines the View used by Sub Consolidate which reads from [Parent Total] and writes to [Proportion] and [Elimination]. When checked, the data processed is YTD, whereas when unchecked it is Periodic. The difference is only apparent when either the [Active] status or the consolidation method changes mid-year. The setting is scenario specific, not application specific, so it would be possible to create a new scenario with this set to Periodic, copy all of the base data from the existing YTD scenario, and re-consolidate. Only then can you assess the impact. My guess is that it should have no effect until you begin using the [Active] account.
