Creating Locations
FDM contains two types of locations:
Data loadWithin the controls structure, data load locations can
be children, but not parents.
Controls reviewLocations assigned only to financial controls. No
data is loaded to or from a controls review location. It can be a
child of another controls review location.

Periods : Date value that is stored in the database during the trialbalance load process, that becomes part of a key
Categories : The Categories table contains definitions of data
categories (containers into which data can be
loaded)
Currency codes : It contains a list of currency codes and used only
for notation, they do not impact calculations
