Posting Vendor invoices during Period close

Another filing in 'things learned along the way'.  In D365 for Operations, if the Purchasing module is On hold for the period and you try to post a vendor invoice with a date that falls in the On hold period, D365 gives you the option to post into the next open period.  I think that is a pretty cool feature.

Importing Chart of Accounts with Exchange Rate Type field populated

I file this under 'things learned along the way'.  I just discovered this tonight when importing Main accounts into a GOLD environment with the 'Exchange rate type' field populated in the source file. There must exist at least one Exchange rate in the Exchange rate table for each Exchange rate type imported.

Without one Exchange rate setup, the DIXF job will throw this error for each record that has that Exchange rate type assigned to it.

Note that 'Foreign currency revaluation exchange rate type' = Exchange rate type in the Main account form.
