Re-opening a closed year

Posted on by 557

Hi. Our accounts seems to have some issues with the closed year 2019 and want to re-open it. 

Is this possible and if so, is there any risks involved?

    Hi Vijay V.M.,

    I am not a developer and can't help you much here.

    What might help is this website where a similar issue is discussed and where people share some code samples:

    dynamicsuser.net/.../ax-periods---close-period

    Best regards,

    Thanks Dr. Reinhard. This is actually upto me at this point. I would like to try this on the test environment. Is there any guide / process for  doing this?

    Hi,

    If the year is closed then you will need a developer who helps you opening it again.

    There is in general no technical risk related to that but your accountants might have to re-do all of their monthly reports for 2020 that they already created if they make changes back in 2019 that impact 2020 (Ex: inventory values, fixed assets, etc.)

    Best regards,

    Ludwig
