Net book value negative in area 50 at fiscal year start

Dear experts,


We cannot perform the year-end closing activities for our German subsidiary due to a problem in asset accounting.

We get following error message AA648 “Net book value negative in area 50 at fiscal year start”.

Actually this refers to 18 assets which were sold in 2006.

We do not know how the corresponding postings were made at this time, but these assets do have values only in areas 50 and 60, and in both
cases these are negative values.

In the past years and until now, these assets were not blocking theclosing activities.

However, we upgraded  to ECC6 EHP7 in October and we assume the present blocage to be an unexpected consequence of the upgrade.

Your gentle help and expert advices are urgently required so that we can close the books.
