Any existing interfaces may have to be reworked New T Codes, same as Classic Ones, with a suffix 'L'. Old T Codes no longer available. Auto direct to New T Code if one uses the older one Postings Leading and Parallel Dep. Area can now post in real time. - Hence, Concept of Delta Dep. Area is Obsolete

Area / Accounting principle, using AB01L - The restriction of transaction types to depreciation areas no longer applies - User Exit APCF_DIFFERENT_AMOUNTS_GET no longer supported Simplified management of goods that are to be capitalized in accordance with one set of accounting principles, but are to be posted to expense in accordance with a different set The integrated posting of investment support on assets using FI transactions is not supported. Tcode ABIFL must be used Documents before changeover from Classical to New AA can’t be reversed. An Inverse posting must be made Work lists made in AA before the changeover may not work. Hence, all pending tasks with the WL must be processed before the migration or New WL must be created after the Migration For all asset postings, all posting dep. Areas are updated in real time. Hence, ASKBN is now required only for Dep. Areas that manage reserves for Spl. Depreciation only Joint Venture Accounting (Oil & Mining) Not Compatible with New Asset Accounting Planning New Planning Solution brings financial accounting (FI) and management accounting (CO) together.

Sample BI cubes are integral part of the SAP now SAP also delivers a program that automatically analyzes existing customer-specific CO-PA dimensions and generates the corresponding BI objects. As this planning solution is completely new, it has no impact on existing plan data. SAP will not provide migration functionality. Project Systems Master Data To take best advantage of the SAP HANA selection capabilities, you must create selection variants Results Analysis Only the following results analysis methods are supported: - Revenue-based results analysis (method 01) - Cost-based results analysis based on the % of completion (method 03) Customer enhancement and the other 15 methods are not supported.
