problem on asset depreciation (useful life changed)


Dear All,

When we changed asset useful life (T.Code AM02),

maybe longer or shorter from original useful life according to intern regulation. There is a cut off year when we start to change all asset useful life. We want to keep (record) original depreciation calculation in previous year, and start to use depreciation calculate base on changed useful life in following years.


Depreciation method, straight line.

Acquisition date is 01.01.2000, useful life 20 years.

Useful life changed in 01.01.2005 to 10 years.

We want view in Asset Value (T.Code AS03) in comparison depreciation tab,

From 2000 to 2004, depreciation calculation base on useful life 20, but starting 2005, depreciation calculation base on useful life 10 years.

We use depreciation area which no posted to GL allowed (Depreciation only in Asset Management area).

Please your advice.
