Steps to remember for the Conversion:

Preparation of Data

Before starting system conversion, get system ready by performing the following activities:

⇒ Check the consistency of your financial data and perform reconciliation between your accounting components, so the data can be merged correctly in the universal journal entry. In SAP S/4HANA all line item documents are stored in the universal ACDOCA data table.

⇒ Perform period-end closing including the storage of reporting key figures and closing the posting periods.

  • Lock the current and previous periods in Materials Management using program RMMMPERI.
  • Perform closing for periodic asset postings using program RAPERB2000.
  • Execute the periodic depreciation posting run using program RAPOST2000.
  • Make sure that all held documents have either been posted or deleted.
  • If you are already using account-based profitability analysis, perform a delta upload to SAP BW for all account-based CO-PA DataSources for which you use the delta method.

⇒ Document the posting data. Make sure that all carry forward balances are complete and consistent. To ensure this, carry forward the balances for all currencies and all ledgers.

⇒ Archive any data that you no longer need in every day business processes before the migration.

⇒ If you have not been using the new depreciation calculation from the Enterprise Extension Financials Extension (EA-FIN) you must implement it as part of a separate project.

Prepare Asset Accounting

Activate the new depreciation calculation in your source system. To do so you must activate the EA-FIN business function.

Perform Pre-Checks

 ⇒ Pre-Checks help you identify the steps you need to take to ensure your system is compatible with the conversion process.

⇒ The Controlling and General Ledger pre-checks provided analyze whether your ledger, company code and controlling area settings are consistent and can be migrated to SAP S/4HANA. These Controlling and General Ledger pre-checks are automatically executed when you run the report R_S4_PRE_TRANSITION_CHECKS.

⇒ To run pre-checks for Asset Accounting (FI-AA), please implement the SAP Notes listed in the collective SAP Note 2333236. The pre-check program for Asset Accounting (FI-AA) is not included in the central pre-check report R_S4_PRE_TRANSITION_CHECKS. To execute the appropriate pre-checks for Asset Accounting, please run the report RASFIN_MIGR_PRECHECK.

⇒ Whereas you run the report R_S4_PRE_TRANSITION_CHECKS in client 000 to perform the checks across all clients, then run the report RASFIN_MIGR_PRECHECK in each productive client.

ACDOCP on S/4 FINANCE

SAP S/4 Finance, 1610 has ACDOCP table for Planning, which has a similar structure to ACDOCA. SAP Plans to switch all CO objects to update ACDOCP and it would be the “Single Source” for planning data. COSP/COSS tables will be replaced with ACDOCP in future.

2017-02-17_212804

ACDOCP will gradually expand to cover “Period based planning” i,e General ledger Planning, Cost Center Planning, Project/WBS planning and Profitability Planning etc.

The Object based plans that for Projects, Sales orders, Productions orders will write into ACDOCP in future.

ACDOCA and ACDOCP  will bring the actual and the planning together all in one single source of truth.

Thank You
