Updating of a fixed capital
Gross fixed capital formation as defined by the European System of Accounts (ESA) consists of resident producers' acquisitions, less disposals, of fixed assets during a given period plus certain additions to the value of non-produced assets realised by the productive activity of producer or institutional units.
Additions to the value of tangible non-produced assets include major improvements to land, such as land reclamation by construction of dikes.

Run Update Location Code to change planned asset locations to current locations when the system reaches the as of date that you specify in the processing options.
