Step 2: Select this group of assets in the Asset List view:

  2. Go to: Edit, Select All.

Step 3: Reset Depreciation on the selected group:

  1. Go to: Depreciation, Reset Depreciation.
  2. Select a book to reset (Note: You only need to select one book).
  3. Select Beginning Date, or Placed-in-Service date:
    • Placed-in-Service will reset the Current Through date to the Placed-in-Service date. This will erase all depreciation in the book selected
    • Beginning Date will reset Current Through date to the Beginning Date. This will remove Period close data
  4. Click OK to execute the command: The program will prompt: There are X# disposed assets selected. Would you like to clear the disposal during the reset process?. Click Yes to remove the disposal information.

Note: In some cases, it is not possible to reset large groups with a single reset. If All assets didn’t reset, use multiple resets on smaller groups.
