2901215 - Deactivation Date Is Read-only


Deactivation Date is greyed out. So you cannot input the deactiviation date directly.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Fixed Asset work center and Fixed Assets view.

  1. Open a fixed asset and select View All.
  2. In Master Data and Life Cycle Data, field Deactivation Date is read-only.


It is not a migrated fixed asset. And there is still net book value of this fixed asset.

Deactivation Date is only valid for Migrated Fixed Assets. In other cases, the consistent course of action is to scrap the asset.


You have to scrap the Asset via Manual Postings -> Complete Scrapping, to avoid inconsistencies in the system.

  1. Go to Fixed Asset work center and Fixed Assets view.
  2. Select the fixed asset and select Manual Posting--Complete Scraping.
