Troubleshooting Steps
 Issue 1: The program did not compute depreciation for a specific asset or ledger.
 Issue 2: The system prints the message, "Invalid Accum Dep Acct/Post Edit Code Error", on the depreciation journal.
 Issue 3: After upgrading from release A7.3 to A9.x, depreciation batches appear in a Pending status even though the processing option is set to automatically submit the post.
 Issue 4: The system did not calculate depreciation based on the date entered in the Date Depreciation Started field (DSD) that displays for the asset on the Depr & Accounting Values screen (P1202). 
 Issue 5: The system uses the net book value (NBV) as the basis for depreciation instead of cost. 
 Issue 6: The system prints the message, "This depreciation start date is invalid", on the depreciation journal. 
 Issue 7: The system did not calculate depreciation based on the life months that display for the asset on the Depr & Accounting Values screen (P1202).
 Issue 8: Why is the error " Depreciation G/L Date is in prior year or prior period for this company" displaying?
 Issue 10: Compute UDD Depreciation (P12855) uses the wrong cost value.
 Issue 11: Depreciation calculation incorrect or message, *** Date pattern missing for asset ***, prints on the Depreciation Journal when you run Compute Depreciation (P12850) using processing option 3.
 Issue 12: Current year assets do not appear on the Depreciation Journal until you run it for mid-year, even though the apportionment code (ITAC) assigned to the asset’s F1202 record does not use a mid-year convention. Additionally, when you run Compute Deprecation (P12850) in final mode, the program updates the value of ITAC to Y (mid-year convention) on the asset’s F1202 record for the AA ledger. Why?
 Issue 13: Compute UDD Depreciation (P12855) returns error Asset Number . . . . # DM= 01 Special Handling code in UDC 12/DM not 1. Why?
 Issue 14: When you run Compute UDD Depreciation (P12855), the program calculates negative depreciation on some assets.  In other words, the value of net book value (NBV) increases.
 Issue 15: The Compute Depreciation program (P12850) does not select all assets eligible for a depreciation calculation using Data Selection of Date Acquired LE (Less than or equal to) a specific date.
