1716506 - Transaction AW01N: multiple / duplicate asset depreciation for one period


  • In the Asset Explorer (transaction AW01N) the system shows multiple asset depreciation for one period.
  • ''In tab 'Posted values' in transaction AW01N it appears that 2 values for the same period are shown: one planned value and one posted value in the same period. This can even be a planned value of 0.00.
  • Simulating the next period depreciation, the amount to be posted is similar to the already posted amount in the same period. It is not in the next chronologically expected period.
  • This is happening for other assets in the same company code as well.
  • The total amount of planned depreciation for the year is correct.
  • The system recalculates the remaining depreciation over one extra period. The system may shows now 13 periods instead of 12. One period is listed twice.

This is unexpected system behaviour: in fact, when you check the values in line item table ANLP, you notice the planned, posted and to-be-posted values are consistent.
