Depreciation Run Fails - "G/L account needs dimension assignment for dimension 1 "

Hello Everyone,

We have a customer whose depreciation run is failing due to "G/L account needs dimension assignment for dimension 1" They have assigned cost accounting dimensions 1, 2, and 3 for all assets at the cost accounting tab and assigned a valid from date (all earlier than date of depreciation run) . We verified via query. All distribution rules and cost centers are active and the box "consolidate journal entry rows by distribution rules" is checked when attempting to execute the depreciation run.

Is there another configuration that we are missing? The assumption is that the depreciation amounts will post by cost center.

Thank you for looking.

Hi,

It is not the Fixed Asset but the G/L Accounts which are going to be posted when Depreciation Run is posted. Check those G/L Accounts in the Chart of Account and see if those are marked with Dimensions applicable but no default Dimension is taken. If blank, then this error will appear as system will not be able to identify which dimension to pick without any default.

Thank you very much for responding.

To clarify, the journal entry will only post to the dimension set at the chart of accounts setup (below)

and not based on the setup data at the Asset Master (below)

If that is the case then what is the purpose of the Distribution rules at the Asset Master? Or is there another method to post depreciation so that it is recorded by cost center as setup at the Asset Master?

Thanks again
