Goal

Many calendar changes can not be supported and are prevented by the form, throwing a FRM-40200 error when trying to update calendar/period data.

One open issue in the note was if its possible to change the ever first opened period within a new ledger as it was wrongly choosen. As it was possible to arrange a datafix in R11, this note now delivers all steps to apply a datafix solution in R12.
