Dear All, 

 

When I try to activate an object it gives me the question “Acquisition value is zero. Do you want to activate the object?”. Normal cycle is followed from PO to invoicing and why does this question arise?

Hi, 

Did you get info message ‘This Voucher will update Fixed Assets’? Also you need to update the GL voucher before activation of FA object.

Hi @ OrangeCloud,

 

I have done some knowledge search and similar cases has reported before for different versions of the APP. Please try the below TEST plan to solve the issue.

 

The error message: FA acquisition account 2140 supplied but object identity missing in code part Asset come because Pre-Posting is not set to M151 Posting for Code Part Asset.

 

After you setup above step then go to the Rotable part Pool window and select the Object which has erroneous accounting and the do “Refresh Preposing”. After that you have to do the Transfer inventory Transactions once again for the correct site.

 

Please let me know once you try it.

 

Kind Regards,

Kalpa.
