          let me try to decipher the expression for you:

          sum( - obviously, summary of the following:

          {$< - signified the beginning of the Set Analysis condition that respects most user selections, exept for the modified ones

          Month =, - ignores user selection of the Month

          Year = {"<=$(#=only(Year))"} - this expression only applies to Years that are less or equal to the single selected/available Year (has to be only one)

          ,[Account - Report] = {'Balance'} - the field [Account-Report] need s to be equal to 'Balance'

          >} - end of Set Analysis condition

          $([G/L Amount])) * - the actual expression that's being summarized is... I assume a variable called [G/L Amount] ??? (I can only speculate that the variable holds the name of the Field that should be aggregated)

          max(total <[Account - Concept]> [Account - Factor]) - multiplied by the maximum of [Account -Factor] over the Dimension called [Account-Concept]

          Something along these lines...
