Transfer Prior Year Asset to Multiple new assets

Hello friends,

We are required to breakdown one of our large Expansion Machinery Assets to multiple assets to reflect the main equipment purchased for the project.

There is a transaction in SAP (ABUMN) Transfer with-in Company Code. I think this transaction will work OK, EXCEPT for the following issue:

The Old Asset currently has a book life of 8 years. When we break this asset down, there are a few peices of equipment that we would like to depriciate at 12 years.

If we use Transaction ABUMN (Transfer) the transation will automatically move the % of depr allocation to the $ transfered based on book life of the old asset (8 years). What this will do is show the new asset (that has a book life of 12 years) as being over depriciated.

When this project is completed and the assets have been changed, I would like to show an adjustment in Depriciation Expense.

I am not sure as to which transaction ABAA or ABMA to be used to adjust the depreciation. Or is that I need to tackle this differently.

Please advise.
