Depreciation Calculation Not Allocating PDP Correctly For Multiple Chartfields (Doc ID 2276435.1)

Last updated on JUNE 13, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Asset Management - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 9.2 version, Depreciation

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Depreciation Calculation is Not Correct

The depreciation calculation in 9.2 is behaving differently than 9.0 in certain situations, the allocation of expense is not accurate. The situation where we found the error involved multiple transactions from Project Costing, an asset in-service date/transaction date of 1/31/16, an accounting date of 7/31/16, and the depreciation convention being half year (profile id 176834_07 - for BU LIRRD). In 9.0 the allocation of expense was evenly spread out over the last six months of the year (half year), in 9.2 the monthly amounts (DPR) and the catch up amount (PDP) are both not accurate.

We know if we sync the profile id to the book page the allocation of expense is corrected (depreciate when in service box is checked). However this is not a step that's needed in 9.0.
 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
the PDP allocation of expense should evenly spread out over the last six months of the year (half year) for all chartfields

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Add project costing with multiple chartfields transaction
2. Add profile that will have Depreciation When in Service checked
3. Add asset definition with category populated.
4. Run PC_AM or PC_EXPRSS_AM
5. RUN AMIF1000
6. RUN AM_DER_CALC/AMDPCALC --> PDP is not created for all the cf_seqno
