Asset Shut Down Indicator not functioning

Hi Fellows,

Issue : depreciation is posted for March 2011. I want to set the asset shutdown indicator so that no depreciation is posted from 01.04.2011.

First I went to the depreciation area ,changed the depreciation key to 0000 (in the key Asset shut down is "Yes"). Then I go to the Asset Shutdown indicator and in intervals I put from 01.04.2011, tick the shut down indicator and save it.

When I go to the values, and check a lumpsum amount appears as + depreciation to be posted (total of last 3 months of depreciation). I run the AFAB for APril and see even though the indicator is ticked the asset is picked during depreciation run with planned amount o but in amount to be posted the + value mentioned above.

Client wants to stop the depreciation till further date.

Can anyone please let me know what I am doing wrong?

Any solutionising wud be appreciated

    this is not unusual.

    should down means that no depreciation is calculated in this period. But it can be that there is some depreciation left from the periods in which the assert was not shut downed.

    If you set the shut down indicator and at the same time change the depreciation key, of course the system has to post some depreciation.

    This depreciation must be posted.

    regards Bernhard

    What you did is wrong... You have changed the Dep Key to 0000.. Hence, the Dep for P1-3 is getting reversed

    No need to change the Dep Key for your case.. Just activate the Asset Shutdown indicator in the Asset Master AND Allow the Shutdown indicator in your Existing Dep Key in AFAMA
