Hi Kuldeep

Please find answers to your queries,

1. upto which date we will take the last year assets accumulated dep

suppose your fiscal year is from Jan to Dec and you are planning to upload values in mid of year say in june, then you should upload the following

a. Accum APC till 31st may

b. Accum Dep till 31st Dec

c. Ordinary dep posted between jan - june

d. Value adjustments in the year (Asset transaction in Jan - June)

2. how we will upload the current year assets?

the upload should be done in phases and as on cut of date configuration which you have done in the system.

for example if your go live date is on 1st July then last day of the previous month should be your cut off date. You should upload ll the asset master followed by transaction values till this date.

3. how we will upload the current year dep of current year assets.

Ordinary depreciation posted in the current year is uploaded through legacy data takeover transaction AS91.

For uploading takeover values you should normally record transaction as91- in your badi or ABAP programs.

Please note that mere uploading values in AS91 does not update G/L balances. G/L balances needs to be uploaded seperately

4.if we will take accumulated dep of old assets up to data tranfer date(30.09.2008) and just create current assets through as01 and as92 (For transaction values) than how we will run the dep and from which period we will start, and if we start from the 01.04.2008 than will the system will calculate the dep for old assets from 01.04.2008

I believe your fiscal year is from 1.10.2008 to 30.09.2008. In this case your date transfer date will be 30.09.2008. you also have to state till what period depreciation has been posted . this configuration is just below where you mention your asset transfer date. so if you upload asset on 01.04.2008 considering fiscal year is from 1.10.2008 to 30.09.2008, you will have "7" as period of depreciation posted. The system will then calculate depreciation from period 8 after upload

5. what should be the capitalization date.

Capitalization date should before the Asset transfer date. ideally it should be the original cap date of the asset.

7. what should be the Previous system dep period.

considering above fiscal year it should be "7"

Hope this heps you !

Thanks

Sanjeev
