Make 'Deprec. Areas' tab 'read only'

Hi, Gurus

When we create a new asset, we inform the asset class which contains it (tr. u2018AS01u2019). After filling all required data, we get to u201CDeprec. Areasu201D tab. All data within this tab are loaded from other sources, so that we donu2019t want that anybody updates it. The problem is that the 2 first lines are open to update.

Is there any way so that we can make all u201CDeprec. Áreasu201D tab u201Cread onlyu201D?

Thanks

Osvaldo

    Hi.

    On t-Code AO21 you can make it "Read Only".

    Best regards.

    Hi, Leandro

    We don't want the whole transaction "AS01" to be set "read only". Only one of its tabs, called "Deprec Areas". Do you know how to do this?

    Thank you

    Osvaldo

      Osvaldo, using AO21 you can set field by field.

      It's quite useful mainly to Depr Area Tab. Have you tried it?

      If yes, please post here further questions. I'll b glad to help you.

      Best regards. LeandroBr

    Check Authorization to asset views ( Transaction code ANSICHT) with which you can control data maintenance.

    Hi, Leandro

    Thank you for helping us. With transaction AO21, we can make almost all we wish. We must disable all fields within "Dreprec Areas" tab, but there are some that can't be modified (for example: Depreciation Key). Our requirement here is: all columns within this tab must be disabled, except "ODep Start".

    Is there any way so that we can accomplish it?

    Obrigado

    Osvaldo

      Osvaldo,

      I don't think that this is the way to do it. When some one make a type error you van never change this.

      You have to do this with authorization and assign the different roles to the user. There should be a roll that can change this

      To set this up see the transaction: ANSICHT Process Asset Views

      This is the help how to set this up or search on this forum with ANSICHT

      Process Asset Views

      In addition to the standard SAP authorization functions, the Asset Accounting component provides the asset view, which offers additional authorization protection. The "asset view" authorization object (A_A_VIEW) controls master data maintenance to a certain extent. You can use this object to assign users limited views of asset data and asset values.

      For each asset view, you can specify the field groups that can be maintained from this view, are displayed only, or are suppressed. You also specify the field groups for which the user is only allowed to enter default values.

      Standard settings

      The system can work with a maximum of 8 asset views. You can change these asset views, but you cannot delete them or add new asset views.

      To create asset master records you need at least one asset view. You have to use standard view 1 (asset accounting) in order to be able to create complete asset master records.

      Recommendation

      You should use the standard SAP asset views. In that case, you do not have to carry out any activities here.

      Activities

      1. Choose "Asset view" and check the descriptions supplied by SAP. If necessary, change the descriptions so they conform to your internal organization. Select the asset view with which you want to work.

      2. Choose "Authorization for master data fields". Specify which field groups in the selected asset view can be edited, displayed or maintained.

      Note: You can select several field groups at the same time and assign them the same authorization using the "Set authorization" pushbutton (in group box "Set authorization for selected entries").

      3. Choose "Authorization for depreciation areas". For each depreciation area, specify which authorizations apply
