Asset Depreciation calculation
I purchased one asset 11111 in 01.01.2013, New asset 22222 is created as addition to 11111, now user wants to depreciate it as if it was acquired together in 11111.
For First Asset 11111 Depreciation start date is at 01.01.2013 as follows:
For asset 22222 the Depreciation start date is 01.06.2014 as follows:
This is because 22222 was entered into the system in June, so the system automatically assumes ODepStart is 01.06.2014
Should the depreciation start date for asset 22222 be changed to 01.01.2013(like 11111) so that it can be depreciated accordingly?

I would suggest using transaction ABNAN post-capitalization.
When performing post-capitalization, posting shall be performed with
transaction ABNAN and original value date (from 2013).
For example, if value date 01.06.2013 has to be kept, unplanned
depreciation to 2014 can be posted in order to achieve your goals.
Also, The system determines the "asset value date" of the post capitalization
according to IMG settings
>Specify How Default Asset Value Date is Determined.
Hope this helps,
