2719967 - Asset Revaluation and Accounting Principle: it is a required field


  • For a revaluation posting on an asset with transaction ABSO is not possible to select depreciation areas related to different accounting principle at the same time and leave the field 'Accounting Principle' empty/blank.
  • For other transaction types (for example 181 or 100) the same field 'Accounting Principle' is not mandatory.
  • It is not clear how to change this system behavior: how to remove the mandatory field for 'Accounting Principle' for revaluation transaction type 800 for example.
  • How is it possible to avoid executing the transaction without having to enter the accounting principles? 
  • Same system behaviour is observed when other revaluation transaction types are used like for example tty 820, 891, 896, 898 etc: it shows the same field as a 'required' field ('ticked'). 
  • How can this obligatory field be removed when running the transaction with revaluation transaction code 800 for example?
