Dep. posting in TC-AFAB
while executing TC-AFAB following error message is displayed.
Create document number range YY using internal number assignment
Message no. AA776
Processing terminated because the document number range YY for year 2008 was set up with external number assignment.
For periodic posting of depreciation, you have to create a document number range with internal number assignment, since the document numbers are assigned from Financial Accounting.
Change the number assignment for the number range YY from external to internal in Customizing for Asset Accounting. See SAP Note 890976 for more information.
Now my question is i have executed the same with same parameter for previous month which was also with same external no. assignment.why it is asking to do by changing the no range assignment.Pl.advice.

which release are you on? If you are in ECC 5.0 this functionality is activated with the changes of note 903118.
If you are on ECC 6.0 I don´t believe that you have been able to successfully run any depreciation run with external number range.
@Paul: one advantage of the internal document number range is in fact that there is no need any more to use it only for depreciation purposes. You can use any document type from then on, independent on the document number ranges (as long as it is internal). I wouldn´t recommend this, but it is possible from now on, whereas this has lead to immense problems with the external document number range in the past. Whoever once had a problem with error message AA 728 (Documents manually posted within dep.doc.number range) knows what I am talking about.
