Useful Life of an asset class

Hi SAP Gurus

I have 2 questions with respect to asset class:

1. What are the risks associated with asset classes for which the useful life is defined as 0?

2. Is there any configuration in SAP which we can use to define the maximum value for the user life of an asset class when the user life is input manually?

Many thanks.

Regards

Nithin

    • Hi Nithin,

      For general information on creating validations, see

      o the Implementation Guide for Special Ledgers, under Tools -> Maintain Validation/Substitution/Rules -> Validation

      o the SAP library, under Accounting -> Financials -> Special Ledgers-> Tools -> Validation

      Requirements

      In your validation, you can also use a user-defined field that you have

      created in your own parameter structure. To ensure that you can use this

      field for defining a validation, you have to make the following

      settings:

      1. You have to define an append structure for the SAP structure

      ACEVSR_VAL_PAR. You have to add the required user-defined field to

      the append structure. Proceed as follows:

      a) From the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Tools -> ABAP Workbench

      -> Development -> Dictionary (transaction SE11).

      b) In the database table field, enter ACEVSR_VAL_PAR and choose Change.

      c) Choose Activate and then Append Structure.

      d) Choose New Entries, enter a name in the customer namespace and

      choose Enter.

      e) Add the required field to your append structure.

      Save your settings.

      2. You have to add the field to the SAP structure ACAC_PARAMETERS. To

      do so, proceed as follows:

      a) From the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Tools -> ABAP Workbench

      -> Development -> Dictionary (transaction SE11).

      b) In the database table field, enter ACAC_PARAMETERS and choose

      Change.

      c) Enter the required user-defined field.

      d) Choose Activate.

      e) Save your settings.

      3. Assign the required user-defined field to the accrual object

      categories in which you want to use the field.

      To do so, call up Customizing for Manual Accruals and choose Basic

      Settings -> Technical Settings -> Accrual Object Categories ->

      Abgrenzungsobjekttypen Parameter zuordnen

      Activities

      4. Define your validation.

      5. Now activate your validation.

      regards Bernhard
