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 Depreciation Calculation codeunit (5616). To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Change the code in the GetLastEntryDates function as follows:
    Exiting code

    IF GetPartOfCalculation(0,i - 1,DeprBookCode) THEN BEGIN
    IF FIND('-') THEN
    REPEAT
    IF "Part of Book Value" OR "Part of Depreciable Basis" THEN
    IF "FA Posting Date" > EntryDates[i] THEN

    // Delete the following line.
    EntryDates[i] := "FA Posting Date";

    UNTIL NEXT = 0;
    END;
    END;
    END;
    END;

    Replacement code

    IF GetPartOfCalculation(0,i - 1,DeprBookCode) THEN BEGIN
    IF FIND('-') THEN
    REPEAT
    IF "Part of Book Value" OR "Part of Depreciable Basis" THEN
    IF "FA Posting Date" > EntryDates[i] THEN

    // Add the following line.
    EntryDates[i] := CheckEntryDate(FALedgEntry);

    UNTIL NEXT = 0;
    END;
    END;
    END;
    END;


  2. Change the code in the in the GetFirstDeprDate function as follows:
    Existing code

    IF FIND('+') THEN
    IF ToMorrow("FA Posting Date",Year365Days) > LocalDate THEN
    LocalDate := ToMorrow("FA Posting Date",Year365Days);
    GetLastEntryDates(FANo,DeprBookCode,EntryDates);
    FOR i := 1 TO 4 DO

    // Delete the following lines.
    IF EntryDates[i] <> 0D THEN
    IF ToMorrow(EntryDates[i],Year365Days) > LocalDate THEN
    LocalDate := ToMorrow(EntryDates[i],Year365Days);
    // End of the deleted lines.

    END;
    EXIT(LocalDate);
    END;

    PROCEDURE GetMinusBookValue@17(FANo@1000 : Code[20];DeprBookCode@1001 : Code[10];StartingDate@1002 : Date;EndingDate@1003 : Date) : Decimal;

    Replacement code

    IF FIND('+') THEN
    IF ToMorrow("FA Posting Date",Year365Days) > LocalDate THEN
    LocalDate := ToMorrow("FA Posting Date",Year365Days);
    GetLastEntryDates(FANo,DeprBookCode,EntryDates);
    FOR i := 1 TO 4 DO

    // Add the following lines.
    IF EntryDates[i] > LocalDate THEN
    LocalDate := EntryDates[i];
    // End of the added lines.

    END;
    EXIT(LocalDate);
    END;

    PROCEDURE GetMinusBookValue@17(FANo@1000 : Code[20];DeprBookCode@1001 : Code[10];StartingDate@1002 : Date;EndingDate@1003 : Date) : Decimal;
  3. Change the code in the CheckEntryDate function as follows:
    Exiting code

    ThisDate := ThisDate - 1;
    ThisDate := ThisDate - 1;
    EXIT(ThisDate);
    END;

    BEGIN
    END.
    }
    }

    Replacement code

    ThisDate := ThisDate - 1;
    ThisDate := ThisDate - 1;
    EXIT(ThisDate);
    END;

    // Add the following lines.
    LOCAL PROCEDURE CheckEntryDate@1001(FALedgerEntry@1002 : Record 5601) : Date;
    BEGIN
    WITH FALedgerEntry DO BEGIN
    IF (FALedgerEntry."FA Posting Type" = FALedgerEntry."FA Posting Type"::"Write-Down") AND ("FA Posting Date" <> 0D)THEN
    IF (DATE2DMY("FA Posting Date",2) = 2) AND (DATE2DMY("FA Posting Date",2) <> DATE2DMY("FA Posting Date" + 1,2)) THEN
    EXIT("FA Posting Date" + 1);
    EXIT("FA Posting Date");
    END;
    END;

    // End of the added lines.

    BEGIN
    END.
    }
    }
