Inconsistency between asset accounting and special ledger (ACCMAP)

Hi Gurus,

We are having an issue with Special Ledger and Asset Accounting in 6.0 version. We just made an upgrade in our system at November 2012 from 4.7 version to 6.0. Before this upgrade, we needed made changes to OADB transaction but we got an error beacause in ACCMAP transaction, entries exists for this company code. We delete this entries, because in 6.0 version this transaction is obsolete, but now we are having problems with postings in Special Purpose Ledgers.

Accounts that were defined for Special Ledger (depreciation area n° 30) posted on our main ledger, only in November and not in Special Ledger. It seems like the system confused our main ledger and US GAAP Special ledger and i think that maybe the reason of this was the ACCMAP entries deletion.

There is no way to generate new entries in ACCMAP transaction. Do you know any workaround for this? Also, we have to correct all the wrong postings to the main ledger.

Thanks in advance, regards!

    Dear Aquiles,

    Here is the story behind ACCMAP.

    Why is ACCMAP (concept of the accounting principle) obsolete in ECC 6.0. and why it is no longer needed? It was used in previous releases to "filter" which values and from what depr.area should go to the special ledger. In this way, let´s say, you linked the depreciation area to the accounting principle and this to the special ledger in order for the information to flow from the specific area to the specific "special ledger".

    This logic has changed. Now you link the depreciation area to the parallel ledger directly in OADB (no need of accounting principle).

    The parallel ledger solution is, in fact, a development of the special ledger concept.

    Please refer note - 1167702. The note will enable you to enter new entries in ACCMAP and to change entries in OADB as long as you have not activated the new G/L functionality.

    Best Regards,

    Nishan Dev
