    Hi there,

    I am trying posting to GL but Book ID is grayed out, so i am unable to select different book id. Any clue what might've happened? Thanks!

    Hi Sunaina,

    The Book ID in the FA-GL Posting routine is determined by the Corporate Book assigned in the Fixed Assets Company Setup* window.
    * Financial >> Setup >> Fixed Assets >> Company

    Fixed Assets only links 1 Book to General Ledger posting. Any other books you use in Fixed Assets are intended to track asset values based on other valuations, if needed, but not for General Ledger posting activity. (example: some companies track the tax basis of an asset or GAAP value if their books are IFRS etc.).

    It cannot be changed or flipped back and forth.
