Acquisition values should not be updated in few dep areas..

HI Experts,

I am configuring Asset accounting for our client. We have COD CA01and Below depreciation areas:

01 book dep 1

05 Book dep for 0

10 Group Currency in USD 0

13 Revaluation 0

45 for tax 3

47 for tax 3

Now client don't want acquisition values in 13, 45 & 47 dep areas. They only want dep values for reporting . I did configuration accordingly in below Path:

spro--> financial aaccounting --> asset accounting --> integration gl --> define dep area.

Now i have below option to control this requirement, please suggest me best option;

1- I mentioned 'No Values' in above path. So that asset reporting

2- OABC, Can i use this t-code for this requirement? Now existing 13, 45 & 47 is assigned to 01 dep area that means these areas are adopting values from 01. But when i am trying to change setting for 13 dep area, system is showing error msg " 13 can not adopt values from 01 while it is activate for posting. I tried to keep this areas blank .

3- OABD, what is the use of this t-code?

4- spro--> financial aaccounting --> asset accounting -->valuation --> Parallel Currency --> Specify use of Parallel Currency.

I tried to remove 01 dep area link with these areas. but i am getting same error as above mentioned "Can not adopt values ".

So my questions are, Which option is best for this requirement? And can i control acquisition values thru OABC, OABD & 4 option or they control only for depreciation values?

If i mention in these dep area as "No Values" for acquisition, i have to remove the link from OABC, OABD & 4th option or not?

Thanks in advance. But this is very urgent....

    Hello Pooja,

    Please be aware that real time postings on the leading ledger goes

    to all ledgers.

    You can go to to check the documentation:

    FI -> Asset -> Integration -> Parallel Account in Asset Accounting ->

    Making Settings for Parallel Ledgers in FI-AA

    Acquisition/transf/retirement postings in area 01

    go to all ledgers independently of your setting in OADB and, if any

    difference occurs between area 01 an area XX this is posted trough

    the derived area YY (posting indicator 6).

    This is the parallel ledger scenario logic and how the techinal

    solution to this requirement was developped.

    hope this clarifies the situation

      Hi Ray,

      Thanks for the quick reply.

      Actually i didn't assign ledger to dep areas. we are using manually. But this is not my concern, I just want to know which way we can control acquisition values for given dep areas.

      One more thing when i tried to changed assignment of 01 dep area to 13 dep, i got error "Takeover of values from deprec. area 01 is not possible". But same thing i did in table "T093A" and i didn't face any error. Can i use this table if i am getting error in OBAC and OABD. is this right way to change.

      Please guide me ASAP
