3030787 - Changing a depreciation terms eg depreciation key changes depreciation in unintended periods


Changing a depreciation terms (eg depreciaion key, useful life) results in unintended changes in periods that you don't want.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter Manage Fixed Assets app.
  2. In the asset you change the depreciation key.
  3. You see the planned depreciation changes with new entries in already posted periods.


You have changed the key that was used when the depreciation was posted. The system will consider all open fiscal years want to be changed when a depreciation key is changed.


Use a new time interval to enter the date you want the new depreciation key to be considered. And ensure that prior fiscal years are closed as possible to ensure that no unintended changes are made.

NB There is no guarantee that all planned values will be removed, and as such it maybe required to posted via a depreciation run any planned values remaining.
