The error AAPO183 arises when the receiving asset does not contain a
unit of measure for the quantity . Please ensure that you have defined
a unit of measure (MEINS). For your case, you can go to AS02 and change
your asset to have a unit of measure (the field beside quantity)
Please also see note 44944 which explains this.
Other related errors to understand the theory behind are AAPO181 and AAPO168. You have take into account if the asset does have in the "asset master record
a "unit of measure" indicated or not.
If you display the asset master, in trx. AS03 and you can see a
"unit of measure", then this asset is supposed to be posted by
In this case, if you try to post an acquisition for this asset,
without indicating quantity, then you get the WARNING message
AAPO168 (Enter quantity in &2 asset &1 has quantity update)
Why is a warning? Cause it is just a reminder that this asset can
be posted with quantities. Not an error, cause quantity can be
manually updated in the asset by trx. AS02.
Now the error AAPO181 (Enter both quantity and unit of measure). This error comes from the relation between "quantity" and "unit of measure" in the posting, not in the asset master.
So if we go to ABZON, and indicate and unit of measure without
indicating quantity, you get the ERROR message AAPO181.
Why an error? Cause you are indicating to the system that an
unit of measure is involved, so it is not logic to have quantity
I hope this helps you.
