Asset Shutdown, reverses current year depreciation for posted periods


Dear SAP Experts,

Following your suggestion is on Asset Shutdown, however, this is what I am seeing in my system ECC5.0

1. Created additional interval starting with Apr 1st, 2009 - since the Mar depr has already been completed, and shut the asset down as of Apr 1.

2. Just by doing this step alone, the asset will still depreciate with some debits and credits (small amounts ) for the remaining of the current fiscal year and will be completely shut down for the remaining fiscal years. Why is it doing this?

3. Changed the depreciation key from ZSTL to 0000 - in addition to having the interval above created.

4. After that step, the asset stops depreciation going forward for current year and following years, BUT it reverses the YTD depreciation taken so far - in this case Jan to Mar.

So, as you can see we do not have a solution where the asset is shut down as of a particular date and there is NO depreciation going forward AND the YTD depr is not being reversed. Please let me know if you would like is to set up a meeting and go through these steps, or if maybe I need to test something else.

Please help.
