SAP FI ... Why we should ticket the check box negative allowed

Dear Team,

Case history:- My client purchased a asset in current FY 2017 with document date 30.11.2017 and posting date 08/1/2018. Now he realised that it was wrongly posted and wanted to reverse the transaction on 19/1/2018 through MR8M system is throwing error

" Acquisition value negative in area 30 " . Now i found the solution to rectify this error by selecting check box in asset master. But my question is why we should select this option and reason behind it.

I observed that Book depreciation is in INR local currency and 30 Book depreciation in GBP.

Asset cost lets say 2lac INR and he wants to reverse the same amount 2lac. Depreciation is not yet run. The asset was booked through PO I also observed there is no exchange rate difference while reversing the invoice. Team i just need to know reason for selecting negative check box allow so that i can check the configuration or anything i missed out why system is throwing this error there would be some reason why system is checking but i am unable to figure out that gap through my analysis.

    Hi Kishore,

    Your understanding seems to be correct here that on reversal system should not look "Acquisition value" negative allowed.

    Try below:

    1. Since it is 30 Dep area has different currency, chances are that some sort of exchange rate differences causing this issue. Please check if any ex. rate difference.

    2. Try to reverse the document on 08/1/2018 (means on posting date). This might work.

    Regards

    Shakeel.

    • Hi Kishore,

      You can try below as well.

      1. Check if you have, by any chance, put translation date (actually exchange rate is picked from translation date only, either document date or posting date goes to Translation date or translation date can be put manually, in this case, system will ignore document and posting date for exchange rate) manually during invoice verification. Though, on reversal system should always get the same translation date.

      2. Can you check if any Z customization/development is foul playing here. Get the good technical consultant (ABAPer)on the job.

      Most important, on getting the reason/solution for this, please do share your learnings and we will learn from yours :)

      Regards

      Shakeel

    Hi Kishore,

    the problem / misunderstanding is that it is not only relevant the the values are positiv at the end. The values have to be positiv anytime. If not the AA 617 rises (I think this is the isssue that you are talking about).

    best regards

    Bernhard
