3297913 - AA634 is raised during a recalculation or by clicking into the depreciation area S/4Hana Cloud

Symptom

Either by doing a recalculation via the Schedule Asset Accounting Jobs app, or by clicking into a depreciation area in the Manage Fixed Assets/Manage Legacy Assets app error AA634 - Correction to ordinary dep. greater than acc. dep. in area &

Environment

SAP S/4HANA CLOUD

Reproducing the Issue

  • Perform a recalculation of assets via Schedule Asset Accounting Jobs app, the error is captured in the log.
  • Enter Manage Fixed Assets app or Manage Legacy Assets app, clicking into the depreciation area the error is triggered. 

Cause

For this situation, check that Group Currency was taken over correctly during the legacy data take over. If Group Currency was not taken over correctly this error can be triggered. Group Currency is mandatory. 

It is to be clearly stated that this is a mishandling issue to be treated as consulting when Group Currency was not taken over correctly during the legacy take over. 

Resolution

  1. The recommended approach is to reverse the wrongly taken over values during the legacy data take over and post them correctly ensuring that the Group Currency values are included in the newly posted legacy documents. Often due to Business constraints this is not possible. 
  2. Post a new journal entry just to the Group Currency only, this can be done using transaction type 158 in the Miscellaneous Transactions app. In the Miscellaneous Transactions app, enter the parameters for the posting, then select the Line Items button, deselect the currency translation flag. Now you can zero the amounts for Company Code Currency, and populate the values required for Group Currency. Please see the attachment which shows two detailed examples, one bring Group Currency to zero, and a second example to bring Group Currency in sync with Company Code Currency.
  3. The last option is to set the Negative Indicator Flag in the depreciation area. This is the least favoured approach, since it does not resolve the underlying issue of the wrongly taken over values which should be addressed.
