    Hi,

    Find below the details:-

    Repeat posting run:

    You can request a repeat posting run for the last period posted. A repeat run might be necessary, for example, if the depreciation terms were changed for individual assets in connection with the year-end closing. During a repeat posting run, the system only posts the differences that resulted between the first posting run and the repeat posting run (no double posting). You can limit the run to particular assets.

    Take note of the following special considerations related to the posting process (use of catch-up or smoothing) when you make a repeat run.

    1. Catch-up method

    When you use the catch-up method, the system calculates depreciation over again from the start of the year (or depreciation start) up to and including the depreciation period you are now posting. The difference between this amount and the total depreciation already posted is the new depreciation amount that is posted in the case of a repeat run. As a result of this recalculation of depreciation, new postings and changed depreciation parameters are included in the repeat run.

    2. Smoothing

    When you use the smoothing method, the annual depreciation that is still to be posted is distributed evenly over the periods that have not yet been posted. There is no recalculation of depreciation, as there is when the catch-up method is used. Once a period is posted, there can be no new posting to the same period. Any changes to depreciation terms, and/or any new acquisition postings, become effective only in the following period. The only exception is when a new asset is created. Depreciation is then posted for this asset in the repeat run, since no depreciation was posted for it up to that point.

    Please assign points if this gives the required information.

    Regards

    Hari
