Period control method change for ABAO/ABAV
For some assets we need to run tcode ABAO/ABAV and we need to change the period control method from 06 (at the start of the year) to 01 (pro rata at period start date).
After modifying the customizing from 06 to 01 we run ABAO/ABAV which calculates the amount of the current year depreciation as "planned depreciation " which will be recognized in gl running AFAB at the end of the year.
If after running ABAO/ABAV with period control method 01 we set back 06, the planned depreciation with method 01 calculated doesn't change, can you confirm that?

According to me once you have done the ABAO / ABAV on the assets, the assets are retired fully and are deactivated. You can check the deactivation date in Asset master of the assets. So any changes pertaining to the Period Control will not have any effect on the assets which are deactivated.
