Depreciation needs to be posted based on evaluation group

Hello All,

can you please suggest, what needs to be done to post depreciation based on Evaluation group1 when we run AFAB

Example:

If an asset has the entry “ABCD” in the field Evaluation group1 then depreciation should post to P&L XXXXX and the cost centre YYYYYY.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Regards

Chandu

    Hi Chandu

    I do not think it is possible. May be you should use different asset classes for different evaluation groups.

    Hi Chandu,

    Replacement of cost center based on evaluation group can be done with the help of substitution logic for asset master data

    Refer following link

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_46c/helpdata/en/4f/71e0b5448011d189f00000e81ddfac/content.htm

    Account determination is linked to asset class so request you to design combination of asset class and account determination which can match your requirement for GL. You can have multiple account determination assigned to one asset class but not vice versa. Genrally evaluation group is used to internally group the assets at different levels and GL accounts are bifurcated based on asset class / account determination

    Thank You

    Hello Chandu,

    the basis for the postings is Account determination (field KTOGR) You could use different account determinations for different evaluation groups.

    Hi Chandu

    The simple answer is - Its not possible!! Unless you are willing to take the pain of heavy customization

    The requirement is not a valid one for sure. If some one feels that Asset should post depreciation to GL X, then you need to have a separate asset class and account determination for the same

    My solution would be

    1. Create 2 asset classes

    2. Make the Eval Grp field mandatory in screen layout and then Have a validation built in that if Eval Grp is X, then Account determination should be Y, so that the person will be forced to choose different Asset Class in such cases..

    Once you do this, everything else falls in place

    Eval groups are meant for reporting purpose only.. They cant influence the GL account at the time of AFAB, but you can use Eval Grp to divert the user to choose a different asset class using validation, and eventually influence the GL account
