Update Future Years Accounts Tool Does not Move Payable Amounts from Future To Current

When running the Update Future Years Accounts tool the Grants Payable - Future Years amounts do not get moved to Grants Payable. This occurs in fiscal year General Ledger and does not appear to occur in a calendar year General Ledger.

The utility only works on items listed in the ‘Open’ tab in the FIMS AP module. The grant in question in this example had been paid and was in ‘History’ so was not affected by the process.The utility has to be run before the grant is paid and if the voucher due-date is older than the future date the record will not be updated. The grants in this case were older items with due dates in the past that were being looked which would not be affected by the utility.
