abnan - post capitalization for decrease in values

I am using transaction type 402 - ABNAN post capitalization for decrease in values.

The results that I am expecting is a credit to acquisition account, debit to accum depn, and debit (diff between acq amt and accum depn amt) to clearing acct.

What I am getting is a credit to acquisition account and debit to accumulated depreciation, with no posting to clearing account.

The configuration for transaction type 402:

Transaciton type group 99

credit transaction

capitalize fixed asset

consolidated transaction type 275

Asst hist sheet group 40..

Any suggestions as to why the post capitalization - for decrease in values is not working? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Post capitalization is used to bring in an asset that should have been capitalized in a prior fiscal year (one that is already closed) but for some reason was not created/capitalized at the time. It allows you to enter an asset value date from a prior fiscal year and it adjusts the depreciation to reflect that which should already have been posted -- as a vlaue adjustment.

    If you are trying to decrease the value of an asset why don't you try the transactions that are available in the "manual value correction" section under "posting."
