Hi Sergius,  Did you try using the Reverse option on the Fixed Asset?  This will reverse the asset and associated transactions, and return it to the list of purchases to convert to assets.  


Hi Kristen,

If I reverse the transaction, this Asset will be reversed (include existing depreciation). My requirement only reverse the wrong purchasing + transaction (1 transaction only).

Could you help me on this?

Hi @sketaren 

Reversing the asset and creating new asset with correct information is correct process.

The purchasing + transaction is created based on the GL account setting. Once transactions are generated, the GL account cannot be changed.

Were any changes made to the GL account on the Fixed asset profile

Can you let us know the original Purchase + transaction (Dr and Cr accounts ) and the GL accounts you intend to see after correction. 




Hi @vkumar 

The requirement is to reverse the second purchase + transaction only.

Hi @sketaren 

For your last question, you may create FA Transaction of type Purchasing+ with negative value.  Ensure the remaining information is same as original Purchasing + transaction. This should work as manual reversal transaction. 

Hope this helps,
