Automatic Posting in different depreciation area (4.7 and 6.0)

Dear all,

I want to understand how it is possible the procedure of automatic posting in different depreciation areas.

Exemple: I post a specific movement via ABAON, and automatically the system creates another document (with sequencial number, because uses THE SAME DOCUMENT TYPE), to another depreciation area (using ASKB). And that procedure happens in 4.7 version.

Now, in different version, like ECC 6.0, the system react the same as in 4.7, but uses another method when creates the document, as I say in the next path:

Financial Accounting >Asset Accounting>Integration with the General Ledger>Post APC Values Periodically to the General Ledger>Specify Document Type for Periodic Posting of Asset Values

This is the customization part to associate the new document (another depreciation area, as I've explained before).

This step is possible to choose only one document type. But in version 4.7 (at least it is what is happening in my client) the document type is choosen according to the first document, the one, I post in ABAON (or another transaction with similar characterics).

Please anyone can help me?

Thanks in advance,

    I'm not sure, but the different documents could have the following reasons:

    If you have configured a depreciation area to post with posting indicator "4" or "6" the postings in this area are technically processed via "V2-update". With this update a log table is written where all successul updates of this area are stored.

    When you start RAPBER2000 this log table is compared against all postings (since the last run) and if there is

    any posting missing RAPERB2000 collects this missing posting.

    In the document you can see the transactions:

    ASKBDN: direct posting

    ASKBN: RAPERB2000 makes the posting.

    • Hi,

      Conclusion: Online posted documents use different document types to realtime posted documents.

      First: the difference "online" and "direct" posting area:

      The area 01 (or the investment support area) books "Online" - real time and with synchronous update.

      "Online" in this context is different "direct".

      Direct is quasi-real time but asynchronously, may be slightly delayed. In the best case, direct means also real-time.

      However, there is a difference.

      This logic for direct postings was implemented with the internal number range conversion.

      So there have been some "weak points" that are now resolved that for direct postings there is always used the RAPERB - document type. Now the direct postings use always the same number range, independent if it worked or if the RAPERB makes the posting.

      The "direct" posted document is completely separated from the realtime posted document.

      The logic that I have explained in my last answer concerns Option 4 and 6 means: It means RAPERB makes the posting when V2 posting don't works.

      This is completely different to Option 2: this means: RAPERB makes the posting.

      Regards Bernhard
