Hello Experts,

I am facing an issue where I have activated depreciation area in OAYZ which are related tax depreciation.

Newly activated depreciation areas are visible perfectly in fresh assets. But when I am looking at old/existing assets it is not showing at all.

Then I tried running AFBN thinking to get the depreciation areas in existing assets, it also did not work out.

I am not sure whether AFBN could be the solution for this, but since it is used to add new depreciation area in masters hence I tried. May be adding new depreciation means newly created and NOT activated, I did it for newly activated as well, thinking it will work but failed.

Can experts please guide me how can I have newly activated depreciation areas via OAYZ will be visible in existing asset master ?

Experts guidance will be very helpful in this.

Hi Sharu,

if you activate a depreciation area in OAYZ it is no visible in already created assets.

You will see this area only in assets that are activated after this changing.

If you want to create a depreciation area in already existing assets the steps are as follows:

1. Create Depreciation area via OADB.

2. Activate Depreciation area via OAYZ.

3. Automatic opening of new depreciation are via AFBN and program RAFABNEW :

3.1 Indicator: Leave values initial = not ticked.
Do not set this indicator if you want the system
to copy the values from depreciation area 01.

3.2 Indicator: Leave values initial = ticked.
Set this indicator if you want to open the newly created
depreciation area without any values i.e. blank.

4. Recalculate depreciation via AFAR and program RAAFAR00.

best regards
