Usually the sums of this groups are economic indicators, e.g. if
current assets < current liabilities
there is a liquidity problem.

The tables in
show the grouping for the 3 regions AT (UGB), DE (HGB) and intl (IFRS).
The latter can be adapted for the less formal US (GAAP). They are shown
for 2 different methods:
Period costing Method (Gesamtkostenverfahren) and
Cost of Sales Method (Umsatzkostenverfahren)

I have currently no idea, how to get this different forms from the
report by options.
