AC559 in New Assets accounting activation

Hi, all.

When we activate New Asset Accounting in EPH7 we get Error Message “Parallel currency depreciation area xx is not defined correctly” –> Message no. AC559, or error message “Parallel crcy area (crcy type xx) missing for area xx ch.of deprec. xxxx”(from note 2307443).

But we can’t use this note and set flag IdntTrm, because, we have different sums in other depr areas.

How can we resolve that problem and activate New Asset Accounting?

    Hello Alexander,

    maybe I don't understand your problem completely, but here my comments to you.

    What do you mean with "we have different sums in other depr areas."? Because you will have same possibilities in new asset accouting as you had in old one. Based on depreciation keys and useful life you will have different sums automatically...

    But you talk about the activation of new asset accounting, so I think your problem is some steps earlier.

    We have accounts approach and not ledger approach (how about you?) and we have to use 2 ledger groups (but both have the same lleading ledger inside; because we have only 1 ledger because of accounts approach). Then there is customizing "Assign Accounting Principle to Ledger Groups", here you just define the necessary accounting principles to the ledger groups (for example GAAP and IAS) . Then you can use this accounting principles in customizing "Define Depreciation Areas" . If there are 2 different accounting principles you will have automatically 2 different areas posting into G/L (the leading valuation usually with 1 - area posts in realtime, the "other" area with different accounting principle should have 4 - area posts APC immediately and depreciation periodically.

    After this you have to check OABT for APC-transfer and the mark for deprecation transfer. Here you will see the effect from settings above, you should have 2 posting areas to G/L ("with different sums" possible).

    There are some really good documents explaining this at help.sap.com if you search for "parallel accounting asset", for example https://help.sap.com/viewer/651d8af3ea974ad1a4d74449122c620e/1709%20000/en-US/11a9445269598544e10000000a44538d.html

    Good luck!

    Harald

    Thanks a lot Harald.

    We will review the documentation again and try to use accounts approach.
