Set or Reset Reconciliation Accounts

Hi,

I have some adjustment posting to be made to Asset Recon Account and know that we have to use OAMK to do that. However we cannot do that in live company code status and should be changed to status '2'--test or '3'--deactivate in "Activate Company Code" config. I have read in many discussions recommending using test status and trying to understand the implication of 2 and 3 and which is better. one of my previous consultants has used 3. Also what precautions should i take once the adjustment postings are done. I know that we have to reset it back to recon account, should i do this whole thing after hours as to make sure that no other user posts it to this particular recon account. can you recommend the best practices here. thank you

Shriya

    Indicator '3' should ONLY be used for company codes which are no more operative but you still need you report on them. For ex: your company stopped business in 2007, and therefore you did not perform any of the regular FA closing steps BUT you still need to report for that company code. SAP Note 687988 explains it.

    Best practice is to change the indicator to 0 after your asset balance have been loaded and validated. Functionally, keeping 0, 1 or 2 would hardly make a difference to the user. But, technically not changing the indicator to 0 means that you are putting your systems at great risk. Some could, accidentally delete the asset masters or transactions, if they have the access. Because indicator can be changed from 0 to 2, if need arises, there is hardly a good reason to keep it 1 or 2 once balances have been validated.

    I have seen the indicator kept '2' one time though -- we had multiple facilties/plants for the same company code, and deployed by plants. So, at times, there were company codes, which we knew would need future asset loads when we reached the next plant. We kept that as '2'. May be it wasnt a good idea, but because we had very strict authorizations controls, the risk of some one deleting data was almost zero

    Hope this helps

    Thanks
