E1: 12: Overview Fixed Assets Automatic Accounting Instructions (AAIs) (P0012) (Doc ID 626062.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 28, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Fixed Assets - Version XE and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Many JD Edwards EnterpriseOne programs need information about the account structure and specific account values to process business transactions properly. You define the account structure and specific account values using AAIs. The system stores the AAI values that you define for the company in the Automatic Accounting Instructions Master table (F0012). Whenever a program performs an accounting function, it accesses this table.  Make sure that the object accounts are either 4 or 5 digits but not both.  If there is left over demo data that doesn't fit into your structure make sure and remove it.  Object accounts like 2310 are seen as object account 23100 when the system is setup to use a 5 digit object.

Some of the fixed assets AAIs can be set up as specific to the company, based on ranges of account numbers. The system includes predefined ranges. You must specify the business unit, object, and subsidiary accounts for the ranges as necessary.

The system uses single AAI values to find individual accounts and AAI ranges to find account ranges. When you set up AAI ranges, note that:

For example, do not set up FX range 01-02 and FX range 05-06, and leave FX range 03-04 blank for later use. If the system searches the AAIs for an account and finds a gap in a range, it stops searching.

Set up these AAI ranges for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Fixed Assets system:

AAI RangeDescription


Identifies accounts that post to fixed assets and equipment.


Identifies accounts for which the system can automatically create any necessary asset master records when you run a post to fixed assets.


Identifies asset cost accounts.


Identifies accumulated depreciation accounts.


Identifies accounts and descriptive text that define totals for summary reporting.


Identifies the secondary accumulated depreciation account.


Identifies the secondary depreciation expense account.


Identifies the tertiary depreciation expense account.

DS1 - DS4

Identifies depreciation statistics accounts.


Identifies the asset balance for the specified ledger type.

FR1 - FR3

Identifies revaluation offset accounts.


Important! Many programs in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Fixed Assets system use specific AAIs and AAI ranges.  It is recommend that these not be changed unless a clear understanding of the system exists.  Please be very familiar with the use of an AAI or AAI range before changing any of the AAI values. 

TRY NOT TO MAKE RANGES LARGER THAN NEEDED. INCLUDE ONLY THE FIXED ASSET ACCOUNTS!  The object accounts that are included in the fixed assets AAI ranges are assumed to be fixed asset accounts, therefore, make sure they relate to fixed assets and not other systems. 


Important! If Changes are made to any of the AAIs!

Please have the IT department clear cache, then sign back onto the system.
