Trying to make sense of cash flow

The following consolidated cash flow statement is driving me nuts.
Operating profit before working capital changes 102,121,341 –––––––––––––––––––––––––– –––––––––––––––––––––––––– Adjustments for : (Increase)/ Decrease in Inventories (144,135,486) (Increase)/ Decrease in Receivables (59,034,626) (Increase)/ Decrease in Loans and advances (65,848,164) Increase/(Decrease) in Trade Creditors 164,134,037 Inc./ (Dec.) in Other current liabilities and provisions 127,337,146 Cash generated from/(used in) operations 124,574,248
In this case, shouldn't the eqn be Operating profit before working capital changes - (Increase) in Inventories (144,135,486) - (Increase) in Receivables (59,034,626) - (Increase) in Loans and advances (65,848,164) + Increase in Trade Creditors 164,134,037 + Inc. in Other current liabilities and provisions 127,337,146 = Cash generated from operations 124,574,248?
How has the operating profit of 102,121,341 changed to cash generated of 124,574,248? Because, no matter how many times I add up the numbers, they don't tally. :)
Thanks for any help and clarifications and sorry for the bother.

Thanks and like I said sorry for the botheration. I suspected I was adding up wrong, but needed the external confirmation. Following a real balance sheet is different from an example balance sheet. Precisely because I wasn't sure that what I was doing was right surely contributed to my adding and getting the wrong total 3 times in a row. :)
