Error AA 417 occurs in T-code: ABAVN


Error AA 417 occurs  when post retirement in T-code: ABAVN.

Reproducing the Issue

1. The asset has the balances of last year before T-cd: ABAVN is executed. 

2. Posting with “From Curr.-aquis.” at T-cd: ABAVN to this asset will result in error AA 417.


1. The transaction type used is 310. Check T-code: AO75 for transaction type 310 and get the transaction group.

2. Check the flag “Curr.-yr.acq. transaction” (XZUGNE) at the “Transaction Type Group” 31 via T-code: SM30 -> Table V_TABWG -> Display.

3. “Curr.-yr.acq. transactinon” (XZUGNE) flag is not activated. Hence, this is a prior year transaction. ie

    Prior year         10,000  (Transaction type 310)

    Current year            0

When T-code: ABAVN is executed with ‘From curr-.yr acquis’, system will retire 10,000 from current year which has zero balance. Hence, error AA417 occurs.



In the example provided, select  “Prior-year acquis.”at T-code: ABAVN since asset has prior year acquisition balances.

Furthermore, please refer to SAP Note 1666291 which explained in detailed prior-year and current-year acquisition.

There is also relevant SAP Note 1896699 for similar scenario.
