0FI_AA_12 simulated depreciation

We have a requirement to extract a depreciation forecast/simulation from ECC for IP purposes. Using 0FI_AA_12 as intended to read table ANLP on the ECC side.

We have created a 'Depreciation Planning version D99' and thats what is used in the simulation run job selection below.

When we run a depreciation simulation with this menu path in ECC

Accounting > Fixed Assets > Information System > Reports on Asset Accounting > Depreciation Forecast > Depreciation on Capitalized Assets (Depreciation Simulation)(S_ALR_87012936)

and then take a quick look at a test extraction in rsa6 for 0FI_AA_12 we only see records up to the end of the current fiscal year, even though the report we've run shows us periods out as far as 2011.

We want to be able to extract all periods from the current fiscal year to the ending fiscal period of our simulation run.

My feeling on this is that the report (S_ALR_87012936), is just that, and calculates the results on the fly without posting anything to ANLP. What might be a better step here to really post to ANLP. ?

I've searched this forum and all the others related to BI for items related to this extractor and depreciaton simulation runs in particular. I've even searched other forums (CO etc) in hopes of picking up a clue as to what might be missing. I did locate some relevant OSS notes on the topic but our patch level is high enough that the early notes I did locate (~2005) have all been taken into account.

Points will be awarded.

    Brent - you are not alone in wanting this - as far as I am concerned this is a gap in the current extractor (ie it either performs one of three items for the current fiscal year only: no simulation, a faux pretend simulation 'cos it's easy and a proper R3 simulation)

    The problem with this is - in retail asset volumes extraction of the correct simulated records even for this year would cause the extractor to run for ever

    If, as you said - and as per the last time I looked, the extractor still doesn't do it..

    I would write a bespoke generic extractor which woudl dump the function module contained in the SAP simulated depreciation report, run the simulation and extract from that into bespoke cubes

    My current reply to users wanting this and not wanting to pay for it is - CIMA students with excel are cheap! You have the end date against the asset - you can find the depreciation rate by 1/useful life *100 ..
