Changes

Unsure exactly what changes were responsible in causing this between 12.1.3 and 12.2.5. 
The issue actually changed as it was being worked as patches were applied for other issues.
Initially the Depreciation was defaulting, but it was not correct.
Later no Depreciation was defaulting at all.
This fix should address either of those in 12.2.5.
