Until now, during the automatic legacy data transfer using BAPI BAPI_FIXEDASSET_OVRTAKE_CREATE, it was not possible to transfer historical foreign currency values from the feeder system for depreciation areas in parallel currency. Instead, the SAP system performed an automatic translation.
Now you can decide whether you transfer your historical foreign currency values from the feeder system or whether the values should be translated automatically by the SAP system:
If you do not specify any historical foreign currency values, then the system carries out an automatic translation.
If you want to transfer historical foreign currency values for the depreciation areas in parallel currency, then specify them for the legacy data transfer. The system responds to this by not translating anything.
