Dear All:

I am facing a strange problem. There are some assets which we want to scrap because they have already been capitalized. When i try to discard them via AS06 following error appears Deleting is not possible. The asset already has values. Message no. AY161. Upon investigation i found in aw01n that some down payments were still pending against each asset which i was trying to discard. On further analysis i analysed Vendor Legders and GLs psoting they are surprisingly showing the amounts cleared that were shown as down payments pending in asset explorer. Please guide what should be done.

Regards

I found solution myself. Down payments that exists against these assets need to be clear first then it will let asset to delete.

Hi,

Thru AS06 you can delete only uncapitalized assets only. In your case you should use T.Code ABAVN (Asset retirement by Scrapping).

Hi,

if a asset has already values, you can't delete them with AS06. This is to prevent you from inconsistencies.
