A consolidated account just shows the total amount of all children accounts.

If you have two companies, and want to show Expenses for both companies, your account would be consolidated and show the balances of both child accounts.

Thanks Ray. I wanted to do a clarification here. I got two different impressions from reading some forum and blog entries. Nice day.
