Solution

[1] Question: What reports can you use for reconciliation in Asset Accounting?

Answer: There are several reports that you can use for reconciliation in Asset Accounting. You can use RAABST01 to analyze reconciliation problems between the value update in Asset Accounting and the account update in the general ledger (with reference to a certain account).
For more information, see Note 113670.
RAABST02 selects the asset totals records (ANLC), summarizes the values at G/L account level and the business area level and writes these totaled values to the EWUFIAASUM table. This table is read and the values are reconciled with the general ledger accounts. Read the online documentation for both programs.
You can use all additional reports (for example RAGITT01, RABEST01, RAZUGA01, etc.) to evaluate asset values.

[2] Question: How do you compare the values of the asset history sheet (RAGITT01) with the values of the account?

Answer: To compare the values of Asset Accounting with those of the general ledger, you can execute, among other things, the asset history sheet with posted values (restricted to an account determination). Then, you must reconcile these values with the values of the corresponding general ledger account in the respective period.

[3] Question: How do you determine a difference between FI and FI-AA?

Answer: Start the reconciliation reports mentioned above to determine the amount of a possible difference. In RAABST01, the system displays the corresponding account. By using RACKONTO, you can find out to which account determination the account is assigned. After that, start the asset history sheet with the selection of the account determination and the posted values.
Reconcile the values of the general ledger account with these values.
If there is a difference, execute the asset history sheet for the previous year as well. If the closing balance of the previous year differs from the opening balance of the current year, the fiscal year change should be repeated. If the opening and closing balances still differ after you repeat the fiscal year change, you should check whether a fixed asset exists without original acquisition information (for more information, see Note 3258). If the difference already occurred in previous years, you must check whether the difference was already generated by the legacy data transfer (account balance at time of legacy data transfer differs from the values of the asset history sheet at the time of the legacy data transfer).
As a result, you must carry out a write-off as described in Note 69225. 

[4] Question: What reports can you use for reconciliation in the new general ledger in FI-AA?

Answer:You can use RAABST01 for a reconciliation of the new general ledger and FI-AA.
To do this, you must have imported ECC 5.0, Support Package 01, or you must have implemented Note 752329.
You can use RAABST02 for a reconciliation of the new general ledger and FI-AA.
To do this, you must have imported ECC 5.0, Support Package 14 or ECC 6.0, Support Package 07.
This function is not available for lower releases as well as lower Support Packages. For more information, see note 897388.
