I am testing the process of creating fixed asset via PO. There is a good article on the web which I am following but getting some road block. First let me show the fixed asset parameter screenshot for PO.
Fixed Asset Parameter Screenshot:
I created a shell Fixed asset and entered the fixed asset number in the PO. PO created successfully and updated the fixed asset for the PO amount. I ran the FA acquisition proposal and it created the acquisition entry. When try to post the acquisition entry, getting the error message 'Account number for transaction Type Fixed asset does not exist'(screenshot below). After some trouble shooting, I went to the FA parameter page and changed flag to Yes for 'Allow asset acquisition from purchasing' on the Purchase order box. It allows me to post the entry.
I don't think user need to go every time on the configuration page and flip the flag. Like to know the solution.
I have one more question which is listed below.
2) Created a shell FA and entered two PO for different amount($2K & $6k) for the same FA(one of the PO screenshot below). FA correctly updated for $8K. But on the acquisition entry it created two lines for the same asset($2k and $6K) and entry error out and giving message 'Acquisition for fixed asset Test_503, book GL, already exists'. Looks like there should be only one line for $8K so the entry can be posted(screen shot). Like to know how to fix it.
