Companies from a certain size are obliged to not only create financial statements, but also to provide an explanation for the asset accounting: the asset history sheet. In the SAP menu, the asset history sheet (RAGITT00) is located under ACCOUNTING • FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING • FIXED ASSETS • INFORMATION SYSTEM • REPORTS ON ASSET ACCOUNTING • NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS • INTERNATIONAL • ASSET HISTORY SHEET.
The asset history sheet results list is also the reason why, in the context of SAP Asset Accounting, business transactions must always be posted with a transaction type. Otherwise, this type of column-based display of the business transactions is not possible.
A special feature of the classic asset history sheet (without ALV) is that three potentially individual columns are displayed below one another. This compact information display is practical for an experienced SAP user because all relevant data is presented at a glance. A display with ALV would list the values next to each other rather than below one another, enabling easier export of the data to a spreadsheet program.
