Fixed Asset Legacy Transfer - Different Depreciation Area with Different FY

Former Member

Hi Forum,

I have a case below for Asset Migration:

The company code has 5 parallel ledgers & we have configured several depreciation area with different target ledger as per below

Dep Area 01 - Area post in real time - FY: Dec - Nov - Target ledger: Leading Ledger 0L

Dep Area 40 - Area post depreciation only - FY: Dec - Nov - Target Ledger: Ledger G2

Dep Area 50 - Area post depreciation only - FY: Dec - Nov - Target Ledger: Ledger S2

Dep Area 60 - Area post depreciation only - FY: Jan - Dec - Target Ledger: Ledger T2

Dep Area 70 - Area post depreciation only - FY: Jan - Dec - Target Ledger: Ledger U2

Takeover date: 28 February 2011 (which is period 3 for Ledger 0L, G2, S2; and period 2 for ledger T2 and U2)

Asset acquired in 1 Jan 2009 APC: 60,000 Useful life 5 years.

Monthly depreciation = 1000

Takeover Values in AS91

For Dep Area 01, 40, 50

APC: 60,000

Accum Depre: 23,000

Ord. Depre posted: 3000

(Net Book value = 34,000)

For Dep Area 60, 70

APC: 60,000

Accum Depre: 24,000

Ord. Depre posted: 2000

(Net Book Value = 34,000)

The monthly depreciation for area 60,70 after takover date is different from Dep area 01,40 and 50. This is because SAP limitation for FA, it cannot have a different depreciation area with different start/end date in the FY Variant.

Does anyone know what's the workaround solution so that I can achieve the same monthly depreciation result after takeover date (which is 1000 per month)?

Thanks & Regards,

WH

In configuration, under fixed assets / Asset data transfer / Parameters for data transfer / Date specifications, check Specify last period posted in previous system. You can enter the periods for each depreciation area and so should be able to adjust periods to your different fiscal years.

Hi

I dont think you can specify a take over date per dep area... This is @ Company code level

Hi Jean,

I did that configuration:

Dep Area 01, 40, 50 - Last FY posted 2011 Per 3

Dep Area 60, 70 - Last FY Posted 2011 Per 2

Somehow in AW01N - Posted Values tab for Dep Area 60 & 70, it doesn't take from that Configuration. It still takes period 3.

I suppose this is SAP limitation. But I do not have a workaround solution for this.

Regards,

WH
