AuC Down Payment not clearing


Hi Gurus,

The scenario is that we are using WBS elements to collect costs for AuC. So project Consumption POs were raised and down payments were made against them. Now at the year end some of these need to be settled to AuC.

This we did and down payments appeared on AuC through a default cost element mentioned in PS IMG u2018Define default cost elements for down paymentsu2019. This vendor down payment element 7XXXXXX has no Company code segment.

We understand that these down payments are to be cleared but since the account assignment object in actual vendor down payment line item has WBS element and when we clear it through F-52, clearing doesnu2019t update (FI AA) asset data since no asset number is mentioned in actual vendor down payment line item. So it keeps throwing following error message.

Down payment to recipient 7011000002 0 area 01 amount 2,200.00 not cleared

Message no. AW605


All downpayments were not cleared for the asset under construction for the receiver 7011000002 0 in area 01. An amount of 2,200.00 was not cleared, or too much was cleared.

You can only completely transfer an asset under construction if you reverse the down payments in the current fiscal year beforehand.


Clear the downpayments that you want to settle to receiver 7011000002 0.

Please help how to settle this without reversing downpayments as checks were issued to vendors already.
