    Hi Sheena,

    You can use AS91 to create Asset Master data with respect to Legacy system. You also need to be careful on the timing of asset data transsfer. In SAP you have two options of transferring legacy asset data:

    1). The transfer date can be the end of the last closed fiscal year.

    2). The transfer date can be in the fiscal year that directly follows the last closed fiscal year. This is called "transfer during the fiscal year.

    Please followo the link below for more information on Legacy Asset Data transfer.

      Dear Sheena,

      You don't need to do any Unplanned Depreciation posting in the month of August if you are going live on 01.08.2009. When you use AS91 that time system would ask you to enter Acquisition Value, Accumulated Depreciation as well as Ordinary Depreciation posted. In Ordinary Depreciation Posted, you can enter Depreciation from Jan to July period. However you don't need to post any unplanned depreciation.

      Further you need to post manually G/L posting for asset transaction, because AS91 will only update Asset sub-ledger not the FI Ledger. Then run ABST2 to reconcile it.

      Hope it helps you let me know if you have any other question.

      Regards,

      Sanjay
