When user wants to cancel fixed assets material document in App Material Documents Overview the following error is raised:

Acquisition value will become negative in depreciation area &




The asset class has the characteristics of an AuC class which means no concurrent negative acquisition and production costs are allowed in the areas. If the down payment clearing or any credit posting is posted before the actual receipt, the acquisition value can go temporarily negative, and the above error message is issued during the next posting run.


Asset class for AUC needs to be set with Negative Values Allowed flag.

This can be done as per the following:

  • For an existing asset:

In App Manage Fixed Asset go to Display Valuation / Additional Parameters tab and set Negative Value Allowed

  • General setting for an asset class:

In Configuration Activity (SSCUI) Specify Valuation Views for Asset Class flag Column Negative Values Allowed
