Journal voucher - Fixed asset budget (form) [AX 2012]

Updated: April 1, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Fixed assets > Journals > Fixed asset budget. Select a journal and then click Lines.

Use this form to enter lines in the Fixed asset budget journal and to transfer the lines to fixed asset budgets or general ledger budgets.

You can create several lines by making proposals or you can enter lines one at a time, and you can modify lines before you transfer them. You can also create and transfer fixed asset budget lines in the value model that is attached to the fixed asset and in the Fixed assets budget register entries form.

NoteNote

The lines are budgeted for the posting layer that is shown on the General tab of the journal. If the lines that you are preparing relate to a fixed asset value model with a different posting layer, you must use a journal that is defined for that posting layer.

The fixed asset budget journal type is not subject to budget control when it is entered in the fixed asset budget. After the fixed asset budget is transferred to ledger budget register entries, budget control can be applied to the budget register entries. For example, a budgeted depreciation expense for a fixed asset can be transferred to ledger budget register entries. When budget control is applied to the budget register entries, the available budget is increased to include the depreciation expense budget.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

  • It is a link to a ledger, which allows the incorporation of fixed asset budgets into ledger budgets.

If you cannot post because of a problem with a date, you can verify that an open period exists in the Fiscal calendars form for the fiscal calendar that is used with the transaction. For more information, see About fiscal calendars, fiscal years, and periods.
