MIGO Error: Balance for transaction type group 10 negative for the area 01

Former Member

Dear All,

We encountered a problem while reverse the GR (via MIRO).

It might have something to do with the current FI-AA

configuration. Maybe you can help me with the error


"Balance for transaction type group 10 negative for the area 01

Message no. AA629

Asset affected: 000600000069-0000


With the transaction entered, the balance for the transactions in

group 10 in area 01 will be negative in this fiscal year.

However, the balance of transaction type group 10, according to

its definition, must be positive in each fiscal year.

System Response

The system rejects this posting.


Check the transaction type, the amount and the fiscal year in

your posting. If you want to post a credit memo to an

acquisition from the previous year, then use a transaction type

for a retirement. If necessary, you can change balance rules

after talking with your SAP consultant."

We're processing a planned delivery cost for the asset which is

lower in amount than what was originally in th PO. So, the

posting is basically a credit to the asset. I don't understand

the steps outlined in the error message...not even sure what

"transaction group type 10" is or where to set balance rules in

asset accounting. Maybe someone can point me in the right

direction for this?

i checked the OADB depreciation area for '01' it showing 'All Values allowed'

Thanks in advance for any help!

Check notes 302756

The area 01 possibly represents your controlling area (for internal

cost accounting). The total value (sum of all credits and sum of all

debits on your WBS Level) is amounting to zero in a particular period

(Fiscal Year Period). which is not allowed. You cannot capitalize an

Asset from a Net negative value. Try changing the period or check to

see if the costs are negative using reports S_ALR_87013542 /
