Value in new depreciation area is Zero

Hello All,

I have created a new depreciation area 11. In OABC it is set as 01 (values from book depreciation). In OAYZ, I have assigned the new depreciation area to new asset classes. Then I transferred to value from old assets to new assets by ABUMN and run AFBN for opening the new depreciation area.

In AW01N, I can see the new depreciation area for the asset but with zero value. In the transactions I see the transfer with transaction type 158 and with zero value for the new area. The transaction type taken for book depreciation is 310 and has the correct value. But earlier when I did the testing in quality the transaction type was 310 for both the areas.

In AFBN, the check box Leave initial value was unchecked initially and when I ran it again I result was processed 0 and error 0. I reversed one asset and transferred to new asset class containing both depreciation area again. But again the value in depreciation area 11 is Nil.

Please help.

Thanks,

Sangram

    Hi Sangram

    Since you are already executed AFBN with the option "Leave initial values", you cannot update the records now, as the table entries have already would have got created in tables ANLB,ANLC, etc.

    Now if you want to copy values from other depreicaiton areas to new dep area, one option is to copy a ZZZAFANEW1 by doing a small modification (that is by changing all ABAP commands INSERT to UPDATE) and execute this program. This will update the values from the source depreciation area to target depreciation area, even if table record already exists.

    This code is available in SAP note no.317806

    Test it thoroughly before using it in Production client. Also take care to enter a correct source and target depreciation area to avoid further problems.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

      Hi Sangram

      The intial value might come in the new depreciation area due to customizing error or ticking the "intial values blank" or for AUC assets or or assets asisgned to investment measure, etc.

      Eventhough, the Z program referred by is created for the purpose of assets with IM, from my experience, I can recollect that we can make it work for normal assets too.

      Regards
