2776920 - Schedule a New Recalculation Run for Depreciation, for the Company and the Set of Books

Symptom

You are trying to create a new depreciation run for Company ABC (ABC stands for the company ID) and set of books NNN (NNN stands for the set of books ID) for the period PPP/YYYY (PPP/YYYY stands for the period/year).

You get the warning message " For correct results, before running this depreciation, schedule a new recalculation run for depreciation, for the company ABC and the set of books NNN as there has been no successful processing of recalculation run after the opening of the fiscal year YYYY."

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  2. Go to the Depreciation view.
  3. Click the New button and then Fixed Asset Depreciation Run.
  4. Enter Run Description.
  5. Enter Company as ABC.

You get the warning message

" For correct results, before running this depreciation, schedule a new recalculation run for depreciation, for the company ABC and the set of books NNN as there has been no successful processing of recalculation run after the opening of the fiscal year YYYY."

Cause

Every time a new Fiscal Year is created the depreciation values accumulated for all the Fixed Assets have to be recalculated, so the new period-wise values are persisted for the newly created Fiscal Year.

System does that by scheduling a new Recalculation Run for the depreciation.

Usually this process works without problems, but for some reason failed.

Resolution

You can solve this problem by performing a new recalculation run in update mode by following the steps below:

  1. Go to the Fixed Assets work center.
  2. Go to the Depreciation view.
  3. Click the New button and then Fixed Asset Depreciation Run.
  4. Enter Run Description.
  5. Uncheck the Test run box.
  6. Enter Company as ABC.
  7. Select the Closing step as 020 - Closing entries.
  8. Enter the Period 999/9999.

After the run is finished, check for the status of the run.

If there are errors, resolve them and execute the Recalculation Run once again.
