New Depreciation Area tobe added to the existing Assets


I had Run OAYZ to activate a depreciation area for a Asset Class

I run AFBN to add this new depreciation area to the existing assets.

When I go to Assets Explorer (AW01N) I get following area

Values for Ordinary deprec. have changed in dep. area 13 in fiscal year 2007

Message no. AU390


Depreciation terms were changed in depreciation area 13 since the last

time depreciation was recalculated. The values for Ordinary deprec. that

were saved in the database in fiscal year 2007 are therefore different

from the newly calculated values by an amount of



Check if the newly calculated values are correct. If they are, then

carry out a depreciation recalculation. You should be aware that if you

recalculate depreciation, new values could arise for all open fiscal

years, and these would then have to be posted to the general ledger by

means of a depreciation posting run.

If, on the other hand, you want to keep the values that are saved in the

database, you have to set the depreciation terms back to how they were

at the time of the last depreciation recalculation.

To see a comparison of the old and new values, you can use the Display

dep. calc. function in the asset value display or the Recalculate values

function in the Asset Accounting menu.



Now if I try to click on proceed and recalculate the depreciation (AFAR) the system gives error


in dep. calculation

    Hi Sanjay,

    Execute T Code AFBN and add the new depreciation areas to the existing assets. This will add the new dep area to all the assets under the particular char of depreciation.
