    You can change the Ord Dep Start Date manually in the asset master, provided the new date must be in the same FY of previous date.

    If your Ord Dep Start Date in asset master in Dep tab is not editable then do the following.

    Go to AO21, and select 1000-Screen Layout and click on Field Group Rules-> Select Field Group Ord Dep Start Date and make the field status to OPTIONAL and select check boxes MnNo, SbNo and save. Now you will be able to edit the date in asset master.

    In case if you dont want to change the date manullay, just reverse the asset aquisition and repost it with correct date.

    • Hi,

      You should reverse the acq entry with 01 as reversal reason.

      Means same posting date will be used for reverse posting also, so no dep would be calculated.

      In case if you have already did the same, then there is no point of depreciation at all.

      If you cannot reverse it on the same day of acquistion, then you just need to change the ord dep start date manually only in asset master and the diff dep from old to new date will be taken care in the next dep posting runs.
