Dear Friends:

when posting a credit memo to asset using FB01,the user is getting the error "Acquisition value negative in area 01". I have read in the forum that this error occurs if balance carry forward is less or a balance which is lesser than the current credit value .

I there any other reason when the credit memo is not getting posted? If the above solution is correct, what are the used to analyse the issue?

Please advise?

Dear Sridhar,

The error is coming due to the definition of the depreciation area '01' for the relevant Chart of depreciation. You have a choice of configuration for all types of values viz. Acquisition value, Net book value, Ord.depreciation,etc. The choices are:

1) * All values allowed

2) + Only positive or zero allowed

3) - Only negative or zero allowed

4) 0 No values allowed.

In your case, the configuration for area '01' for Acquisition values is set to option 2) above. Thus it is not allowing you to post a credit memo i.e. a negative value.

You can do two things: 1) Change the configuration to say * All values allowed


2) In the asset master depreciation areas screen, for area 01 check the "negative values allowed' indicator.
