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

Use this form to upgrade fixed asset calendars that were used in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 or earlier to new fiscal calendars that can be shared by multiple legal entities. You can then use the Ledger form to assign the new fiscal calendars to the ledger.

This form displays a list of companies and the names of the calendars that they use. Review this information to verify that the names of the new calendars are unique, and to make any changes to the new calendar names.

  • If all the calendar names in the Calendar name column are unique, you do not have to make any changes. Click Set to ready for upgrade to upgrade the fixed asset calendars to fiscal calendars.

  • If two or more calendars have the same name in the Calendar name column, a new name must be assigned so that each calendar name is unique. For each duplicate calendar name, a new name is suggested in the New name column. You can change these suggested names. When you are finished, click Set to ready for upgrade to upgrade the fixed asset calendars to fiscal calendars.

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