Hello and welcome to my blog post on FM/GM Objects and Asset Account Assignment Integration. In this blog post, I’ll focus on the Asset Master’s Time Dependent Tab.
Over the course of an asset’s life, the time-dependent data in the Asset Master maintains the account assignments, such as Cost Center, Profit Center, and Funds Center. This indicates that “Time Intervals” are used to handle account assignments. The Funds, Funds Center, and Grant should all be turned on while configuring FM/GM.
Add More Account Assignment Objects to the Active List
The Funds, Funds Center, and Grant Fields can be activated in Asset Accounting->Integration with General Ledger Accounting->Additional Account Assignment Objects->Activate Account Assignment Objects.
For these fields, “Active” Indicator must be chosen. Additional checks for “Bal. Sheet” and “Agreement” might also be shown.
If the asset has been capitalised, the balance sheet indicator controls that it is no longer feasible to change the account assignment.
Agreement governs that the account assignment is not altered at the time of posting to the asset. The “AAPO189” error message will appear.
Table of Process Errors
By customising the “Process Error Table” under Asset Accounting->Integration with General Ledger Accounting->Additional Account Assignment Objects->Process Error Table, we may disable the “AAPO189” error notice from appearing on the active account assignment at the time of posting.
Refer to SAP Note: 1880075 – Error AAPO189 during asset transaction posting for more information.
Account Assignment Objects Must Be Specific About Account Assignment Types.
We need to add these fields for postings to GL under Asset Accounting->Integration with General Ledger Accounting->Additional Account Assignment Objects->Specify Account Assignment Types for Account Assignment Objects.
Enable Fields Status in Posting Keys and Field Status Variants (T-Code: FBKP)
Set the Fields Status Group entered in the GL Master to either mandatory or optional depending on the project requirements. Enable the Fields Statuses for Postings Keys, i.e. “70” and “75.”
Define the Asset Master Data screen layout.
Screen Layout in Asset Accounting, Master Data
Establish the Asset Master Data screen layout and check that the fields are displayed in it.
Derivations from FM/GM
The FMDERIVE/GMDERIVE derivation rules make up the last group of configuration. Establish the regulations in accordance with the project’s specifications. Consider the following examples: Cost Center -> Funds Center, Internal Order -> Grants, etc.
I hope that my blog offers insight and solutions for the issue at hand, and I hope that my fellow consultants will find them helpful in their implementations.
