Cannot create a new fiscal year with error prior year must be closed first

Hi dear AX users,

I am just trying to create a new fiscal year for 2017 but I am getting the following error message: To create a new fiscal year starting on 01/01/2017, the fiscal year starting on 01/01/1999 must be closed first.

When I go to fiscal year starting on 01/01/1999 : period start on 01/01/1999, end on 01/01/1999 status is closed, and period start on 01/01/1999, end on 31/01/1999 status is closed, all other periods in 1999 have been stopped.

Have you ever encountered similar errors and do you have any ideas how to resolve this?

Thank you in advance,

Maggie

I checked it in AX 2012, there is a country specific functionality that would cause this error. This is related to France.
There is a parameter “Limited number of open fiscal years” in ledger and the error is dependent on it.
I don’t have AX 4.0 to check.

Hi Kranthi, I’m in AX2012 something similar happens to me, I’m trying to have a calendar from january 2016 to december 2020, but the working time always start from Jan-10-2017 I can’t manage to have previous working days visible in my calendar. Where is the parameter you mention? I can’t find it
Thanks!

This parameter is specific to France and you can only see this in a legal entity that is tied to France.

Thanks Kranthi
