Latest sexy thing I came across:
Oracle Assets mini-pack 11i.FA.K (2398923) contains the Manual Depreciation Override functionality.
In a nutshell:
– set the profile option FA: Enable Depreciation Override to Yes
– write pretty sql to populate fa_deprn_override with a record for each asset per period per book where the depreciation calculation should be overriden with your magically calculated number
and you’re done.. no more frigging around with unplanned depreciation after the event to try and get the accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense to the desired value. How simple is that? I’ll let you know if it actually works 😉
