Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Fixed Assets work center
  2. Go to the Periodic Tasks view and click Depreciation subview.
  3. Open depreciation named 'Recalculation after configuration change company XYZ' (you can see it is generated by Technical User (SAP_LMADM)).


This is an expected system behavior. The system behaves in this manner whenever any changes occur in either Business Configuration or Org Structure which can directly or indirectly affect the fixed asset or depreciation of the fixed asset. The system runs this depreciation run for the open periods in order to bring the planned depreciation value in line with the current changes that are made in the system. This run, that is conducted by the system, will not generate any postings. Moreover, as you can see from the run description, the changes are done in the Org Structure or Business Configuration.

The depreciation run is triggered with Period/Year 999/9999, the planned depreciation is recalculated for all open periods. This is the same as you use the function Recalculate Adjustment on the Values tab in fixed asset master data. This recalculation is to ensure all the fixed assets' depreciation values are correct at any time.


No action is necessary from your side.
