    In the past, the asset values were written directly to a subledger-specific totals and balance table (ANLC). Due to the conversion to the standard journal entry, this table is obsolete and is no longer updated. Instead, the values in the former table ANLC are set up at runtime by means of aggregation from standard journal entry persistence. Consequently, the design is such that reconciliation problems between totals and line items in Asset Accounting are avoided.

    Instead of writing the takeover values directly to the subledger-specific table ANLC (as was previously the case), the values are, with immediate effect, posted as separate transfer documents. For this purpose, you must create and save the fixed asset in dialog mode (transaction AS91) first. This is related to the program design for legacy asset master record maintenance and the resulting technical restrictions. If the legacy asset has been created and saved, you can use the "Takeover values" button on the initial screen in transaction AS92 and AS93 to navigate directly to transaction ABLDT. However, it is important that the asset must exist first (that is, before you can make a posting to this asset)
