Error: Period Depreciation transactions must be entered sequentially

When trying to add a period depreciation transaction to an asset record, user gets error: 'period depreciation transactions must be entered sequentially'
The error message: 'period depreciation transactions must be entered sequentially' is due to a month (period) of depreciation missing from the asset's activity. 

For example if you have the asset's acquisition date as 08/01/02017, there has to be a period depreciation transaction listed for the month of August before they system will let you enter a period depreciation transaction for the month of September.
