error messages from depreciation caculation

01 Book depreciation

long text:

Subsequent acquisition in depreciation area 01 although net book value 0

Message no. AA677


A subsequent acquisition (during the fiscal year) was posted to depreciation area 01, although the net book value zero has already been reached in this year.

Due to the possible reduction of the depreciation amount, it is possible that the entire depreciation amount could become incorrect.

System Response

The system sends a warning.

If you are currently in the midst of posting a document, the document can still be posted.


Refer to SAP Note 92260, which contains an exact description of the symptoms.

Check the depreciation amount. If the amount is actually incorrect, you have two options:

Change the period control of the depreciation key for subsequent acquisitions to 'start of year.'

Post subsequent acquisitions in such cases to subnumbers.

Offset the difference to the correction depreciation amount by making a manual adjustment posting.

Procedure for System Administration

can anyone help?
