Hello,  
We have an old asset that we are not able to retire because it doesn't have an Asset Number.  Any suggestions on how we can get rid of it?
Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately I don't have a GP test server with FA installed to test, but I would recommend trying Reconcile and/or Check Links on your Fixed Asset master.

Just make sure to perform a full backup of your Dynamics and company database(s) before running either.

One of the routines should either assign an asset number to the problem asset, or delete the record.  Make sure to save the error log to a file and review it to see what changes it made.  If it found other issues that resulted in changes, verify that those won't cause issues for you.

Thanks,

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the response.  I tested Reconcile in my Test Instance and it didn't resolve the issue for that asset.  And the Check Links doesn't have "Fixed Asset Master" listed.  Should I be able to see Fixed Asset Master under the Financial Series?

Is it possible to do a backend update on the Asset Number field so that I can retire the asset?

Thanks,
Steve
