Depreciation Key error while creating Asset master

Hi Experts,

While creating Asset master I’m getting the problem. We are using 2 depreciation areas 01 Book Dep and 15 Tax Dep. While creating asset master, in Dep areas tab for 01 I can able to enter Dep key but for 15 it is in display mode. In display mode before entering values in 01, it is showing Tax dep key, after entering values to book dep then it is showing as Book dep area values.

  1. E.g: For 01 book dep key is ZPLM

15 Tax dep key is IN3

Initially in 01 Dep key was ZPLM and 15 was IN3, when I entered Useful life and Ordinary Dep date in asset master then system is automatically picking values to 15 area from book Dep area values i.e. ZPLM in both areas.

I have checked in OBYZ, maintained two values i.e. for 01 ZPLM and for 15 IN3, and I also checked in screen layout for dep areas, for both areas depreciation key is required field.

after entering values to Odep start and uselife

Please let me know any solution for this.

Thanks in advance

Regard s
