2901215 - Fixed Asset Deactivation Date Cannot Be Maintained


You want to deactivate a Fixed Asset. However, it is not possible to enter a Deactivation Date as the field is grayed out.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Fixed Assets work center go to the Fixed Assets view. 
  2. Open the respective Fixed Asset via Edit - Master Data.
  3. In the Life Cycle Data sub-tab you want to enter a Deactivation Date. 

But the Deactivation Date column is read-only.


The Deactivation field is only available for migrated Fixed Assets.

Not migrated Fixed assets with a netbook value higher than zero cannot be deactivated by setting a Deactivation Date. Here, the consistent course of action is to scrap the asset.


You need to scrap the Fixed Asset:

For the Fixed Asset choose Manual Postings and select Complete Scrapping, either within the Fixed Asset or from the Fixed Assets view.
