  1. Go to the Fixed Assets work center, and choose the Fixed Assets view.
  2. Select the Fixed Assets subview.
  3. Select the target fixed asset and choose Manual Posting and then Acquisition.
  4. Check the proposed Document Date and Posting Date. You can enter a Description. You can change the proposed Closing Step.
  5. Check the specified source individual material number.
  6. Enter the Transaction Currency Amount.
  7. From the Account list under Offsetting Account Assignment, try to find the desired G/L account, but it's not there.


G/L accounts of some G/L Account Types are not available for selection, for example Differences, Fixed assets, etc.


You should choose a G/L Account that is available for selection, for example, of G/L Account Type Other assets.

In case you want to use a G/L Account belonging to an account type that is not compatible with Offsetting Account Assignment, you might consider changing the account type.

However, for such change some preconditions apply. Further information is available in help document, in section Changing the Account Type.

The system behaves as designed.
