Intercompany Asset Transfers with Specific Depreciation Areas

I'm transferring one asset from Co A to Co B but I only want to transfer values (APC and accummulated depreciation) for books area - area 01, 30 and 31. I've created new acquisition and retirements transaction types and chosen the gross method and "Post to affiliated company" (TCode AO75 and AO76). I have also limited these TTypes to the 3 depreciation areas (TCode AOXC).

Then I defined new Transfer Variant, referencing the new TTypes and Transfer method 4 - Gross method with transfer of values to dependent areas.

When I use this new Transfer Variant in TCode ABT1N to transfer my asset, when I simulate the posting, the system seems to post in all the depreciation areas, even onces that I didn't specify (15 and 40) which I don't want.

How can I prevent this from happening, ie, only post intercompany transfers to the areas which I've specified in my config?

Hi Emilyn,

Main reason could be there are many other Dep. areas in your system, are being directly derived and being copied from 01 and that seem to be reason it is posting to unwanted Dep. Areas ( 15 and 40)

you try following option:

Create an Asset in Co. B based on copying from respective asset of Co.A . ( if you have mass volume then create a LSMW for AS01)

after that as a next step, Please create Z Transaction type Z47 by copying Standard Transaction type 147 ( Gross interco.transf. acquis. of prior-yr acquis.) Limit this Z transaction type only to the Dep. Areas you need ( i.e. 01, 30 and 31) . and then use transaction ABSO with this new Z Transaction type.

Hope this will be helpful.
