Trying to start depreciation - depr. key 0000 to LINA?

Former Member

Hello:

I have an asset that needs to be depreciated.  It was capitalized on 9/30/2011 and additions/acquisitions have been booked to it since.  When I go to the Deprec. Areas Tab the depreciation key is "0000" all the way down.  No depreciation expense has ever been booked for this asset. 

Depreciation is suppossed to start upon the completion of the project, the completion date is 11/1/2012.  I tried to just change the depreciation key from 0000 to LINA using transaction code AS02 and specify the change the Dep Start date to 11/1/2012.  This gives me a "Depreciation Key 0000 should no longer be changed", I cannot ignore or save my changes..

I am still new to SAP F/A, please let me know  if there is a problem with this approach.  Is there a better way to initiate the depreciation for this asset? 

Thanks in advance

JP

Hi,

The message that you are facing at the time of changing the depreciation key is a Warning message which is a standard warning message which gets pop up every time whenever you try to change the depreciation key. So no problem will it have.

Also system starts calculating depreciation from the capitalisation date so kindly be sure from which date you want to post the depreciation.

Kindly check.

Hi JP,

You can use AS92 to change the depreciation key.

But, before that, please check some configuration:

1. Status of your company code in FI-AA

Path: IMG > Financial Accounting (New) > Asset Accountingg > Asset Data Transfer

The status should be 2 (Test Company code with data transfer always allowed)

2. Transfer date:

Path: IMG > Financial Accounting (New) > Asset Accountingg > Asset Data Transfer  > Parameters for Data Transfer > Date Specificatons  > Specify Transfer date / Last  Closed Fiscal Year

Change the date to 10.31.2012

3. Last period for depreciation posting

Path: IMG > Financial Accounting (New) > Asset Accountingg > Asset Data Transfer  > Parameters for Data Transfer > Date Specificatons  > Specify Last period posted in Prv. System (Transf. during FY)

Choose your company code and change to system period.

Example:

- Your FY is Jan - Dec, change to 2012.10

- Your FY is Apr - Mar, change to 2012.07

Julie
