My questions are:
1)  Can anybody explain The Last Depreciable Element?
2)  Does the table have to have an actual life defined?
3)  Is it tied to the asset life?
4)  How well does BPCS handle taxes for fixed assets?

1) The Last Depreciable Table element is unique by asset based on the 
acquisition date.  I believe the format is YYPP.  On the first depreciation 
period of 
the asset, the value for this field would be 0101 (year 1, period 1).  If the 
asset was acquired on May '03, the value of the field in May 04 would be 0201 
(year 2, period 1), in June '04, it would be 0202 (year 2, period 2).  All of 
this is assuming that that asset is depreciated every period in a 12 period 

2) The actual life is YYMM format.  In a 5 and a half year table the value 
would be 0606.  The value MM represents the number of periods in the last year.

3) The table actual life is not necessarily tied up to the asset life, but 
the life on most tables assigned to assets will match.

4) If you mean depreciation based on tax rules, BPCS handles it pretty well.  
The only problem is that SSA does not keep up with new tax rules, therefore, 
you would need to create your own depreciation tables to conform to any new
