Hi Experts,

I need urgent help regarding adding parrallel investment support Depreciation area on the existing assets. Here is the full details:

Due to asset impairment requirement we have added Depreciation Area XX on the asset masters by adding investment support key in asset masters. But it didn't meet the requirement of updating Group and Global currency requirement. Due to this again we did the configuration of two depreciation area in parrallel to depreciation area XX for Asset Impairment to update Group (XA) and Global Currency(XB).

Now the challenge is how to add new asset impairment depreciation area XA - Group and XB for Global Currency. As we have already XX Depreciation Area on all the Assets for local currency. I have activated at OAYZ level but asset master level update is the challenge.

I tried AFBN as well but its not working at all.

Assets are there on Book XX - Local and needs to activate XA- Group and XB-Global.

Quick response will be highly appreciated. Thanks for the support in advance.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Ravinder,

A couple of checks....

1. Is your Investment Support area has a separate Ledger assigned?

2. If the above is 'Yes', then did you configure the Parallel depreciation areas by considering the below checks.

SPRO ->Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> General Valuation -> Depreciation Areas

1. Define Depreciation Areas: Here, the parallel depreciation areas should be assigned to Group and Global Company currency

2. Specify Transfer of APC Values: Here, the APC Values will be taken from the Book depreciation area 01 for parallel depreciation areas.

3. Specify Transfer of Depreciation Terms: Here, the depreciation terms should be adopted from the area of Investment Support area XX.

SPRO ->Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> General Valuation -> Currencies

1. Define Depreciation Areas for Foreign Currencies

2. Specify the Use of Parallel Currencies

If these are defined correctly, then you have to check the last thing that the exchange rates from the Local currency to Group and Global are correct in OB08 for the transfer date.

If these all are correct, then AFBN should work. Let us know what error you are receiving.
