    hi Supriya,

    AS02 ==> this is a master data change

    ABUMN ==> this is a reposting of the asset, but it has nothing to do with cost centers (because there are no P/L postings behind)

    you have to go for AS02

    hope this helps

    Supriya,

    I start with the assumption that the cost center on the asset master is configured to be time-dependent.

    Now, if your new cost center has the same profit center assignment as the old, then only a change in the cost center of Asset master ( AS02) is enough. This is because no FI entry for moving the acquisition costs for Profit center postings is required. However, if the new cost center has a different Profit center than the old, a mere change in the AS02 is not enough because that doesnt move the Acquisiton values to the new profit center automatically. This will only lead to posting the depreciation in the new cost center but the asset values contine to remain in the old profit center. Hence, whenever there is a cost center change leading to new profit center, the only way to effect the change is to use ABUMN. This way it creates the necessary FI entries also.

    Thanks
