Asset shutdown just for one depreciation area

Hello,

Is it possible to make an asset shutdown just for one depreciation area?

If not, could I prevent SAP from doing adjustments the first time I post depreciations after a legacy data transfer?

Greetings,

    Hi,

    yes, it is. Just assign depreciation keys which do not consider shutdown in the depreciation areas you don´t want to stop. Then you can set the shutdown flag, and only the areas with depreciation keys considering shutdown will stop.

    This is possible in any release with old and new depreciation calculation logic.

    Hi,

    it is possible to restrict transaction type to certain depreciation areas.

    However, this is not a shutdown then. The asset is still active but has no values on it.

    Regards,

    When you use new depreciation ( the explanation you found in the blogs, link is in the first message from this forum) you can create a new time interval,. With a depreciation key with no depreciation for that depreciation area

    Paul gave an excellent suggestion to your issue, but its limited to 6.0.

    Other suggestion would be to use diff deprec keys for diff. deprec areas and configure the area you usually shutdown depreciation on thru AFAMA with shutdown = "yes" and the othey key as shutdown = "no" ... so whenever you check shutdown on your asset record it will only shutdown that particular deprec area which is using deprec key with shutdown="yes" settings.

    Again, Paul's suggestion is more preferrable than this... i will only use my suggestion if am using below 6.0 version or as a work around in case of some issues.

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for your responses but, unfortunately, my main problem was that although I could make the shutdown of the asset just for one depreciation area the adjustment was unavoidable.
