Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger Work Center.
  2. Go to Source Documents view.
  3. Select the respective Goods and Service Cancellation.

You see the error message: Posting date XX/XX/XX must be after last retrmt date xx/xx/xx of fixed asset ABC.


The cancellation Goods and Activity Receipt comes after the complete transfer or retirement of the individual material. Hence, the documents are stuck in accounting with errors.


You will have to reverse the transfer/retirement posting and then post the cancellation Goods and Service Receipt in order to resolve the issue as once the complete transfer/retirement is posted the Individual Material status on the source Fixed Asset is also retired.
