Line Item Settlement from AUC to Fixed asset


I am using AUC under Investment Measure. I want to settle my AUC to Fixed asset by document number wise. You can also say, I want to do partial settlement. System doesnot allow me to settle Line Item wise settlement in AIBU due to Investment Measure selection in Asset Class.

I am trying to settle the AUC to Fixed Assets in KO88, I am getting error message

Down payment to recipient 100620 0 area 01 amount   12,832,161.41 not cleared

Message no. AW605

This has completely messed up entire work. I went through many threads for the solution, but I could not resolve the problem.

Please suggest, how can I do this settlement in SAP?

    Hello Nabin,

    You have the following possibilities concerning down payments:

    1) Post down payments without reference to PO
    2) OAYB for using other asset classes
    3) Note 310368
    4) Use down payments only with AUC

    You should not differ from the standard way of handling downpaymen
    1. Post down-payment to asset
    2. Clear downpayments on asset
    3. Post aquisition to asset        (you can mix up step 2 and 3)
    4. Do whatever you like with the asset (transfer, retire,...)!

    In general the settled down-payments and their clearings should be
    balanced to zero in the settlements:
    - in investment measures with summary settlement you will always g
      the error AA341, if the down-payment balance is not zero
    - in investment measures with line-item settlement you will get er
      AW605, if the down-payment balance is not zero (and parameter XA
      is not set in txn OAYU)

    Below would be the standard `steps used with down payments:

    Below would be the standard `steps used with down payments:

    . F-47 -> F-48 -> ME51N -> ME21N -> MIGO -> MIRO -> F110 -> F-54
    . F-47 -> down payment request -> normally, type KA.
      F-48 -> down payment post    -> normally, type KZ.
      F-54 -> down payment clearing

    Please also refer to the following Notes:

    You can review SAP note 26846:

    If a down payment and a valuated goods receipt are posted for a purchase
    order with account-assignment category 'Fixed asset', the down payment
    cannot (automatically) be cleared so that the APC of the fixed asset (or
    the AuC) are duplicated.

    Recommendation of the note to avoid this error is:

    We therefore recommend to post the goods receipt for purchase orders
    with down payments always nonvaluated. This can be set in Purchasing

    You can also have a look into note: 310368.

    Dereciation starts at Goods Receipt and not at Invoice Receipt.
    Nevertheless, Down Payments cannot be handled separately.
    - Either you keep the settings for non-valuated Goods Receipt and
    depreciation will be calculated on all Goods Receipt items based on the
    depreciation key
    - or use valuated Goods Receipt, and depreciation will be calculated

      on Invoice Receipt.

    Also can you please check the config for downpayment in AO73. Also can
    you please check note 762526 :

    If you do not want to create an asset record with downpayments when
    posting with F-48 referenced to a PO you can do it  by omitting the
    asset taken from the PO (no need to create a substitution with a
    dummy asset). You have to suppress the asset field in posting key 39 in
    transaction OB41.
    (-> posting key 39 -> Field Status -> Asset Accounting -> suppress).
    Afterwards you will get error message F5378 (Purchase document
    is allocated to asset). To get rid of that message you have to switch
    off this error message in transaction OBA5.

    I hope this helps
