Asset Dep. Start Date = 01.11.2009

Usefull file = 10 Years

Acc. Depre -


Please explain how SAP - Asset Deprecition is calculated.

In AW01N after depreciation for 2009 is done for all periods:

Ordinary Dep. change = 118,107.00-

How monthly dep. is calculated for Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar ?

Please check ?

    Everything is correct except your formula

    It should be =(205241813.91%)/365151 and not /12*5

    Since your have selected Dep to the day check box

    So all the calculation will be by days not months

    Hope this will clarify your doubts
