Extracting Reports of Asset

Dear all,

No reports on assets can be extracted for the previous year unless the asset module is closed for year 2006. The procedures for closing yr 2006 can only be effected after the capitalisation process has been effected and the depreciation run has been completed for year 2006 . I believe that extracting reports should have nothing to do with closing of modules.

Does anyone have any idea if any such report exist prior to the closing of the asset module?

Somebody advised me to run the Fiscal Year Change. However I am unsure about this in case it creates problems on the system because according to our business practice, we run Year End Closing, Run Fiscal Year Change and then, extract asset reports (in this order).

Can anyone advise me please?

Thanks for your help.

    Good morning and greetings,

    Ideally speaking the Fiscal Year Change is a flexibility provided by SAP...normally in business practice what happens is that, the books are closed in a months time for ex., for fiscal year ending Dec 2006 it would take a months time for the accounts department to close it and that would mean by Jan 2007...considering these type of operational difficulties you can do a Fiscal Year Change using AJRW and you can work on the previous year as well as the current year...Normally year end closing is done after the Fiscal Year Change...Once you do the Year end closing, thats it you cannot post any entries in the previous year.

    Please reward points if found useful

    Thanking you

    With kindest regards

      a. Try and check if there are any Customized (or Z) reports. FY change shouldnt affect retreival of Asset data in such cases.

      b. Did the AJRW change log indicate that FY was carried out for the CCode in question? Also check the status of the Company Code (in SPRO->Asset-> Asset Data Transfer), in case the status to set to some Test.

      c. Extract data from tables logical databases or use ABAP queries,
