HI All,

I have created an Asset Master (Acquisition Date 05.01.2012, Capitalization Date 06.01.2012).

In Periodic Control Method, for Acquisition, I have given as "11" - Depreciation Starting from next month.

If I see "Depreciation Start Date" in Depreciation Area tab, It shows 06.01.2012.

As I put, DSD from next month(11) in Period Control Method, DSD should be from Feb.

Pls let me know why It shows 06.01.2012.

DSD is usually Capitlisation date

If you do enter a seperate date in DSD it will be defaulted as that date and will appear in Asset master continouously

However depreciation will always be calculated based on your periodic base method ie from 01.02.2012.

HI Srinivas,

Thanks for your reply.

Can you pls let me know where I can see DSD is 01.02.2012 in Asset Master?

If its calculated from 01.02.2012, Why DSD is shown as 06.01.2012 in Depreciation Tab - Depreciation Area?

HI Srinivas,

Good Morning. I have read in some reference books re DSD determination. It says as below.

"The system determines the start date for Ordinary Depreciation using the Asset Value Date of Acquisition posting and Period Control Method, and writes this dates to Depreciation Areas in the asset master record"

Hi Niranjan,

Yes you are right.

DSD is depending upon the settings you made for "Period Control method in Depreciation Key.

If you give any date in Asset master "Depreciation areastab - DSD, then this will get prioritized.

Check your Period control method settings and the below T CODES

OAVH

AFAMP

AFAMA

Period Control method is 11

Try this in Dev

Hope it helps
