New depreciation area - How to update balances in FI?

Hi Experts,

We have created a new depreciation area exactly like book depreciation area 01, except that the new depreciation area will post periodically. After the depreciation area was completely customized, we ran transaction AFBN. Upon doing this, the existing asset master records got updated with the new depreciation area with the values.

However, my question is, how do I update the FI module (GL accounts) with the APC and Accumulated Depreciation (existing) for the new depreciation area? Also, if I am transporting the new depreciation area in August, which balances should I consider for upload into the new depreciation area?

Your expert advice will be very helpful.

Regards,

Aditya

    1. First Identify the accounts involved.

    2. Post Manual journal entries on the accounts involved.

    If the account is Fixed Asset recon account

    Set the status of the company code in Test mode (=2) which can be found in SPRO > Asset Accounting > Asset Accounting (Lean Implementation) > Preparing Production Set-up > Activate comapny code

    Set reconciliation accounts to blank in tcode OAMK

    3. Once manual journal entry is done, you can revert changes in step 2.

    Thanks!

    • Accounts will be automatically be created in OAMK, given that you already maintained fixed asset accounts on AO90 transaction code (Account determination).

      For your next question, it depends when will you go live. Let say you will go live on 9/2014, you should manually calculate (But I guess you already have this data) the accumulated depreciation as of 8/2014. The calculated accumulated depreciation as of 8/2014 should be posted manually on asset GL accounts. After the manual postings, compare your asset history sheet and the GL balances, if they are not the same there is an error on your calculation. When you done the calculation and postings correctly, running 9/2014 AFAB, you will be ok.

      Thanks!
