Difference between T-code AR29 and ABAW

Updated Dec 11, 2023

In SAP Asset Accounting, the processes of revaluation and valuation of assets play a crucial role in maintaining accurate financial records. Two key transaction codes, AR29 and ABAW, serve distinct purposes in this context. Let's explore the differences between t-code AR29 and t-code ABAW. 

Note: Both AR29 and ABAW are transaction codes used in SAP Asset Accounting.

T-code AR29:

  • This t-code is used for the task of Re- and New Valuation of Assets.
  • Designed for posting automatic revaluations collectively for multiple assets using an index for revolution.
  • On t-code AO84, the consolidation transaction type for AR29 must be acquisitions, not Increase/Purchase. This ensures proper handling of new valuations of asset control data during configuration.

T-code ABAW:

  • This t-code is employed for manually posting revaluation amounts of APC (Acquisition and Production Cost) and accumulated depreciation for individual assets.
  • Utilized for specific asset revaluations, allowing manual entry of amounts for APC and accumulated depreciation.
  • The consolidation transaction type for ABAW is not explicitly mentioned, but it is primarily focused on individual asset revaluations rather than collective processes.


Understanding the difference between t-code AR29 and t-code ABAW is essential for SAP users to choose the appropriate transaction code based on the specific requirements of asset revaluation processes.
