Asset takeover: Depreciation posted although OAYC "last period posted in legacy" is in the future


Dear SAP pros,

We currently do an asset takeover during the fiscal year. We've set the last period which was posted in the legacy system to 05/2012 in transaction OAYC.

After the takeover in the quality system, everything looked well in AW01N. Depreciation was planned to start in period 06/2012 for the migrated assets. We also see the special entry for "Legay takeover value" in period 05/2012 in the tab "posted values". Depreciation for period 03/2012 was not yet posted as the system is already live. So we did the depreciation run for period 03/2012 and expected no posting to the newly migrated asset. But to our suprise, SAP posted depreciation for the migrated assets. In AW01N, we can now see the posted values above the line for "legacy takeover value". Furthermore, SAP also wants post depreciation in periods 04 and 05 now.

The value for the year is still correct but we don't understand the posting. SAP tells in the documentation of OAYC that the depreciation will start after the period which is defined in OAYC but obviously it is doing the opposite.

Has anyone had this issue before?

Thanks and best regards,
