AS91 dep key and planned useful life issue


Hello experts

We are currently transferring thousands of assets from a company our customer has acquired.

Everything is working perfect with the LSMW for AS91.

Everything except the fact that the dep keys and planned useful life of the assets created (in test environment) are the ones coming by defaut from the asset class and note the ones from the source files. If I look in the converted file (we used idoc due to high volume of assets), I can see the right depreciation area and useful life but finally when the asset is created the system has taken the default value from asset class.

I have tested the same thing by doing AS91 manually for one asset and I am able to overwrite the default value coming from the asset class.

Any idea what could be the issue?

Many txs

Jose

    hi ,

    You can only overwrite manually once you have created the asset other wise system default them from asset classes

    I believe when you upload you can create a Batch in SM35 and run in foreground and change manually

      OK so you mean with AS91 it's impossible to overwrite the default values (i am using idoc so no possibility to go in foreground mode). Also the volume of assets is so big that it's impossible to change that manually afterwards. I suppose I need to do an AS02 to change all assets after the creation. Txs

    Hi Jose

    In the Screen Layout for Dep Areas (AO21) you can specify if the Maintenance Level is going to be Asset Class or Main Asset for the Depreciation Terms

    See this.. Did you allow only asset class and not the main asset?

    For existing assets with wrong useful life, you can do a change in AS92, AS02 or using MASS change. If it is a test system, just ignore..

    Ok i found the issue. There are two fields to define the from date and the to date validity for the indicated dereciation key indicated in the upload file. If those are empty the LSMW takes by default the asset class values. If they are filled in then the LSMW will overwrite them.

    Issue is closed.

    Many thanks to all of you.
