FA posting to the Ledger

    How do you change the book ID when you are posting the FA to the Ledger?  We have two book ID's.   I went to the FA setup without much success.

    Brian,
    In FA setup, you can only have one book as THE book that posts to the G/L. I'm not sure how you could have multiple without doubling up.

    Mind elaborating a bit on what you're looking for?

    Our company was recently sold and we had to revalue all of our assets.  So instead of manually adjusting each asset, we thought it would be easier to create a different book to post to our general ledger.  I am currently trying to test this.  However, once I run the Depreciation for the added assets, I go to the Fixed Assets General Ledger Posting window....the Book ID defaults to 1 (which is our current book that posts to the GL).  I want to know how to change that to point to the new book at was created.
    Attached is the screen shot of what I am referring to and I added a box around my "issue" as it won't allow any changes.

    Thanks so much in advance for your help!!

    Hi @Ashlie Carey​/ @Brian Marshall

    @Kyle Malone

    is correct, only one book posts to the GL in GP - this is in order not to double up depreciation, etc.

    What it looks like you want to do is change the reporting book.

    To do that go to Financial>Setup>FixedAssets>Company and use the drop down to select the reporting book.

    Yeah, I tried that....but it looks the same as our original book that posts to the GL.  I don't know what to do from your screen shot....It appears that our Book 1 and our Book 2 shows the exact same thing.  Book 2 is the new Book we wish to have post to the GL.

    I uploaded both of those screen shots to show that everything looked the same...

    Hi @Ashlie Carey

    Just select your Book 2 and then run depreciation and your new settings should take effect.​
