After creating a new Fiscal Year you received the warning message.
SAP Business ByDesign.
Reproducing the Issue
Go to the General Ledger work center.
- Go to the Master Data view -> Set of Books and Assigned Companies.
- Click Edit Fiscal Years.
- Press New Fiscal Year.
- Click Save and Close.
Here you see the following messages:
'Automatic recalculation run of depreciation failed due to locks. Schedule a new recalculation run for company XXX and set of books YYY after currently running runs, if any, are finished'
'Your entries have been saved.'
XXX - Company ID.
YYY - Set of Books ID.
This warning message is raised when a new Fiscal Year is created.
Every time a new Fiscal Year is created the depreciation values accumulated for all the Fixed Assets have to be recalculated, so the new period-wise values are persisted for the newly created Fiscal Year.
System does that by scheduling a new Recalculation Run for the depreciation. In case the Fiscal Years are opened for multiple Set of Books together, system tries to schedule the recalculation for every combination of Company and Set of Books in a sequence.
Usually this process should work without problems, but if system finds locks due to another run that is already scheduled for the same Company, the warning message appears.
A new Depreciation Recalculation Run should be created to correct the scenario.
Please check the following steps:
Create a new Depreciation Recalculation Run (A Recalculation Run is a normal Depreciation Run with Fiscal Year = 9999 and Period = 999) for the same Company and Set of Books (for which you opened a new Fiscal Year).
- Schedule it for execution.
- After the run is finished, check for the status of the run. If there are errors, resolve them and execute the Recalculation Run once again.
The scenario should be consistent once you complete the above steps.
