Asset Accounting

Hi Experts

We have been using a third party tool (BEST) to calculate depreciation.

The assets are created in SAP under AUC (Assets Under Construction- Recon account) and when the Assets are ready to be put in use, the asset is moved to a clearing account and then retired. The user then creates the Asset in BEST.

During the mond end, the user does an excel upload from BEST for (1)GL Account (example Furniture, Vehicles, Euipment) which is set up as a non Recon account. This results in Debit to the respective GL Account (Furniture, Vehicles,..) and Credit to Clearing account.

(2) Depreciation Upload from BEST : Debit to Depreciation Expense account and Credit to Accumulated Depreciation Account.

Now the client wants to use the Asset accounting module totally for depreciation calculations and stop using the third party tool BEST.


I have manually created an asset in SAP for the asset class Equipment. The system gives an error:

"You cannot post to the Fiscal Tyear 2011. The year differs by more than a year from the year last posted in"

I checked the Depreciation table TABA and it shows values upto Year 2004.

I have checked the NOTES 144441 AND 843612. As we are on ECC 6.0, the ABAPER says that the correction note is already in the system.

I opened the fiscal year 2005 and did a period wise posting upto FY 2011 using AFAB. The TABA table is now updated but the indicator in the table shows "N" even for the Asset that i just created with values. (NO DATA).

I would like to know the right way of updating the TABA table.

Why does the system doesnot generate a document for the current year for which i have created the Asset with value.

Your response will greatly be appreciated.

Updated TABA Table

1. Don't title your thread as "Asset Accounting". This is the Asset Accounting forum so to title your thread that way is not in line with the forum rules.

2. I wouldn't recommend that you edit TABA directly. If there are no entries for a particular year than you could try and create an asset for that year, acquire it for one penny, depreciate it 100%, run depreciation, then close the FY. You can try and mess with TABA but I just wouldn't recommend it.

Hi Nathan

In order to update the table upto the last closed fiscal year, I have implemented the Note 144441 per Bernhard.

Report ZACORR_TABA_ENTRY_CREATE from note 144441 updated the TABA table upto the last fiscal year.

However, I created a dummy asset with a minimum acquisition value and depreciated 100% to update the table for the current fiscal year.

I apprecaite your answers in solving my issue

if table TABA shows values upto Year 2004 the case is clear.

If there one ore more years between the last depr. run a (dummy-) entry must be made into the table TABA.

Report ZACORR_TABA_ENTRY_CREATE from note 144441 s the correct way to make this.

Hi Bernhard

Thanks for the reply. As per your suggestion, we have implementend the note 144441 with the correction program ZACORR_TABA_ENTRY_CREATE .

The table TABA is updated upto fiscal year 2010 period 9, with an indicatior for Document posted as "N".

We use Fiscal year 2011 (October 2010 is peiriod 1 for FY 2011)

I have created an asset with values for the current year. When I run depreciation (AFAB), for period 1, 2011 using test run, the system doesnt show any propsed depreciation amounts.

Test run completed succesfully

No document were created.

Why does the system not generated any proposed depreciation postings even after the table is updated.
