Fixed Asset Deprecation Calc via Automation Schedule
Has anyone managed to get Depreciation Calculation automated? We want to run depreciation each month on the first day of the month, but it requires the period to be entered and i can't figure out how to update it in the Schedule.
Does checking the Relative box do anything?
Unfortunately appears to have nil effect as in my test runs when doing a Calc with Relative enabled on To Period, all periods get calculated. Which is the same thing that happens when you exclude To Period from the Filter list. Only when explicitly entering a period number on the Calc Depreciation page can you be sure that the calculations will only be done up to that Period.
I guess what is required is a current period checkbox on the Page, or the ability to specify a % variable in the Value field for To Period.
For the time being it looks like Depreciation calc will need to be a manual process.
One additional comment about Relative field - according to the help, it is only applicable to Date fields.
Ah, that rings a bell. I think I've seen that before. It works with Dates, but not with Periods.
Does anyone have an idea how to set Calculate Depreciation object on processing page with automatically set current period?
