In Microsoft Dynamics GP you can add an item in Payables Management or purchase an item in Purchase Order Processing and transfer this information to Fixed Assets. You also have the option of assigning multiple transactions, including both Accounts Payable and Purchase Order transactions to the same asset.
Similarly, a user can assign the same transaction to more than one assets and change transactions that have been assigned to a particular asset. However, if you assign a transaction to an existing asset, you must update the asset book information manually.
In order to enter assets in Payables Management and track them in Fixed Assets, mark the Post PM through to FA option in the Fixed Assets Company Setup window.
If you're using Payables Management, you must add at least one special account in the Fixed Assets Purchasing Posting Accounts Setup window. You can create one or more asset records from a Payables transaction in the Fixed Assets Purchasing Transactions Display window until the total amount of the line item has been applied. Choose Save in the Asset General Information window and the applied amount in the Fixed Assets Purchasing Transactions Display window will get updated. You can then view the information from the selected Payables transaction in the Asset Purchase window.
