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 year. 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 rules.
