This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the United Kingdom (gb) language locale.


When you try to consolidate in a posting period that is not available in the United Kingdom version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, you receive the following error message:

You must create a new fiscal year in the consolidated company.

After you create the period, you still receive the error message to create the posting period. After you create the next period, you receive the following error message:

The consolidation period 16.07.15 .. 16.07.15 is not within the fiscal year 01.01.16 .. 31.12.16 of the consolidated company MOTHER.

This problem occurs in the following products:

  • The United Kingdom version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

  • The United Kingdom version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2

Code changes

Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To resolve this problem, change the code in the CheckDatesToFiscalYear function in the Import Consolidation from DB report (90) as follows:

Existing code

ConsolPeriodInclInFiscalYear := TRUE;

// Delete the following lines.
AccountingPeriod.SETRANGE("Period Type",AccountingPeriod."Period Type"::Year);
IF NOT AccountingPeriod.FIND('-') THEN

WHILE StartDate > AccountingPeriod."Period Start" DO BEGIN
IF AccountingPeriod.NEXT = 0 THEN

FiscalYearStartDate := AccountingPeriod."Period Start";
FiscalYearEndDate := NORMALDATE(AccountingPeriod."Period End");
// End of the deleted lines.

ConsolPeriodInclInFiscalYear := (StartDate >= FiscalYearStartDate) AND (EndDate <= FiscalYearEndDate);

Replacement code

ConsolPeriodInclInFiscalYear := TRUE;

// Add the following lines.
AccountingPeriod.SETRANGE("Period Type",AccountingPeriod."Period Type"::Year);

FiscalYearStartDate := AccountingPeriod."Starting Date";
IF AccountingPeriod.FIND('>') THEN
FiscalYearEndDate := CALCDATE('<-1D>',AccountingPeriod."Starting Date")
// End of the added lines.

ConsolPeriodInclInFiscalYear := (StartDate >= FiscalYearStartDate) AND (EndDate <= FiscalYearEndDate);


You must have one of the following products installed to apply this hotfix:
