Do you have an S- or P- account?

If so, you need SAP Universal ID. In a few months, SAP Universal ID will be the only option to login to SAP Community. Without it, you will lose your content and badges. If you have multiple accounts, use the Consolidation Tool to merge your content.

# Derived Depreciaiton Area

I am trying to create a derived depreciaiton area which is the difference between two real depreciaiton areas (book and Tax).

I am doing the following in the definition of the derived area:

Depreciation Area 01 with Area Sign of + and proportion of 1

Depreciaiton Area 60 with Area Sign of - and proportion of 1

The result is correct for the depreciation amount, but it creates an APC of zero. In the real areas 01 and 60 the APC is the same (as desired). So the forumua is generating a sum of zero. Is this how it is supposed to work? Shouldn't the derived depreciation are be the only thing that is 'derived' by the formula? Or am I just doing something wrong'

This is in 4.70..any tips or insight is appreciated
