AFAR Usage (Recalculate Depreciation)


I am interested in knowing about the use of tcode AFAR. I have seen forums on this tcode but want to understand it from my scenario.

we went golive on July 1, 2014 and at the end of FY 2015 (July to June) i.e. on june 30, 2015. we found that there are few assets that has not calculated depreciation for few assets and it has been running depreciation from July 1, 2015 until date. It was never addressed then and now it is brought to the attention to fix it. I have received an message for the OSS that this is happened because we have deactivated and activated the asset after loading the values but did not recalculate the value again.

I was suggested by another scn user to use AFAR (program RAAFAR00) and would like to understand the implications of it if if use AFAR in our scenario for previous year which is already closed. I ran it in test mode and system is giving me

I have attached the screenshots of the

1) 2015 and 2016 current Asset depreciation values along with Asset change log (all in the same screenshot)

2) Test run of AFAR screenshot for this assets

3) After running the test message (not the actual run), i went to as03 and i got this information message when i click the "Asset Values" button but the values did not change and remained the same as first screenshot.

Can you let me know the impacts of this scenario.

    Hi Shriya,

    If you make any changes to dep.key or useful life of the assets, then system will prompt the above message. Even if there is no changes in depreciation calculations also it will pop-up. As per your screen shot of AFAR test run, there is a difference in depreciation posting. So if you run the depreciation AFAB in repeat mode in last period, then system will post the above difference.
