    Please check the following config-

    Financial Accouning > Asset accounting>master data>Automatic Creation of Equipment Master Records>Assign Master Data Fields of Assets and Equipment.

    Check that field assignment of PM field(EQKTX) & asset accounting field (TXT50)

    • HI

      Assignment of SHTXT(PM) to TXT50(AA) is also OK. However please check that the setting Specify Conditions for Synchronization of Master Data is set to synchronised or not.

      Please go through the documentation

      Assign Master Data Fields of Assets and Equipment


      In this IMG activity, you assign fields from Asset Accounting (FI-AA) to fields in Plant Maintenance (PM) for the synchronization of asset and equipment master data.

      If you made appropriate settings in the Specify Conditions for Synchronization of Master Data IMG activity, then for example, when you create an asset master record, the system automatically creates an equipment master record, and sychronizes the fields of the equipment master record, based on the field assignments.

      On the other hand, the system can also (depending on the settings you make) automatically create an asset master record when you create an equipment master record.


      You assign the cost center field of Asset Accounting to the cost center field of Plant Maintenance. When you create an asset, the cost center entered in the asset master record is automatically adopted in the equipment master record, which is created automatically.

      Standard settings

      SAP provides certain standard assignments for master data fields.


      1. Deactivate assignments that you do not need. You can re-activate them easily at a later point if you need them, without having to set them up again.

      2. You can make additional field assignments, by choosing additional fields from Asset Accounting and assigning them to fields in Plant Maintenance. The available Asset Accounting fields are found in the SAAPM1 DDIC structure, while fields for Plant Maintenance are found in the SAAPM2 DDIC structure.

      3. Activate the assignments, if you have made new ones.

      If you want to make your own, even more specific assignments, you can create an enhancement project for customer exit AAPM0001. Using this project, you can add additional fields to the SAAPM1 and SAAPM2 structures, for which you can then make your assignments.


      The system does not perform a check on the assignments you make. You have to check to ensure that the assignments you make are logical.

      For more information, refer to SAP Note 370884 (and possibly related SAP Notes).
