Invalid calculation method due to change from/to daily calculation


The error is raised when changing from daily calculation based depreciation method to a non-daily calculation or vice versa within one Fiscal Year.

The system will not allow it.


If the need is to use 'No automatic depreciation' along with a daily depreciation method, the Depreciation Method should be '000D' instead of '0000'.

At this time, this is only available in France.

In case it does not appear in the Business Configuration, please scope in the country/region France.

The 000D is similar to 0000 except that it's marked with the daily depreciation flag "true" and hence it's the depreciation code to be used for such scenarios involving daily depreciation codes in other intervals.
