depreciation areas_posting to fi


When using account approach you have following options:

1) Area does not post (no value posted to FI)

2) Area posts in realtime (Asset values posted to FI online and depreciation periodically)

question is - say i have an asset "machine" at 12 % depre. SLM method - 1000 per month - does the above sentence mean the asset value as on 15th of the month would be less by 500 and depreciation will be posted at the end of the month.. in short asset value would reflect as on date status considering dep. but depreciation amount will be updated at the end of the month.

3) area posts asset values and depre. periodically

4) area posts depre (periodically)

5) Area posts asset value directly and depreciation (periodically)

also, i am little confused in "real time" and "on line " terms.. can some one pl. help me understand these with an example..

Thank you,

    Real time mean when u post any document it is updted in FI as well as in AA.

    Online mean when you post depreciation through AFAB it will posted periodically & your posting dare will be end of that period.

    If you have maintained period control method in customising it will surly show you 50% amount at the time of retirement and transfer. but for Depreciation imformation purpose you must have to veiw periodically
