subsequent acquistion in depreciation area 01 although net book value 0

Hi all,

Here is a question that troubles me for 3 months. When I use as01 to create an asset, the error occurs when I attempt to save:

error messages from depreciation caculation

01 Book depreciation

W677 Subsequent acquisition in depreciation area 01 1 althoug

long text:

Subsequent acquisition in depreciation area 01 although net book value 0

Message no. AA677

Diagnosis

A subsequent acquisition (during the fiscal year) was posted to depreciation area 01, although the net book value zero has already been reached in this year.

Due to the possible reduction of the depreciation amount, it is possible that the entire depreciation amount could become incorrect.

System Response

The system sends a warning.

If you are currently in the midst of posting a document, the document can still be posted.

Procedure

Refer to SAP Note 92260, which contains an exact description of the symptoms.

Check the depreciation amount. If the amount is actually incorrect, you have two options:

Change the period control of the depreciation key for subsequent acquisitions to 'start of year.'

Post subsequent acquisitions in such cases to subnumbers.

Offset the difference to the correction depreciation amount by making a manual adjustment posting.

Procedure for System Administration

can anyone help?

    Hi Kite

    As the system has suggested you could change the period control of the depreciation key for subsequent acquisitions to 'start of year.

    When you define period controls in AFAMP select option 01 or 06 for acquisition.

    This should probably solve your problem.

      Is that meaning changing the period controls is the only way? In fact I have seen another system using the period control key defined as "11/11/11/11"?

      and, even I chenge it to 06, the problem occurs again.

      but I've find out it is ok when I don't use any cutoff key.....

      do you know why?
