Legacy asset depreciation



Refered many threads and I am unable to come to a conclusion. So guide me in the following issue.

Legacy asset transfer during mid year .

Want to do Mid year asset transfer from legacy

Following MAy-april Fiscal year.

Asset Capitalizatio date jan-1-2009 ( period 9/2009) 4 months in last year dep for accumilated


Specify Transfer Date/Last Closed Fiscal Year: Entered 1st period last day (31/5/09)

Specify Last Period Posted in Prv.System (Transf.During FY) : 01 and Fiscal Year

Used AS91 for asset loading. Entered Acquired value and accum depreciation.Also Entered period 1 depreciation of current year under current depreciation amount in AS91 screen .Saved the asset

Under Asset explorer the Planned depreciation starts from period 2 correctly as per configuration. But in Period 2 itself it shows the total depreciation amount of period 1 and 2 are displayed. I expect that the depreciation start from period 2 and only one periods depreciation amount ( 2nd period ) to be shown, Is it possible ? Why period 1 +2 are added and shown under planned depreciation .

My requirement is :

want to show the depreciation only from Period 2 and without the depreciation for period 1 already calculated by legacy ? Or am I looking at it wrongly?

Do I have to enter current year depreciation in AS91 screeen or not?

or Do I have to use TRansaction Tab for the same . Whta for the Transaction Tab?

As the depreciation for period 1 has alredy charged in Legacy system why SAP system calculates Period 1 depreciation.Will it not be duplicate ?
