Is there a way to sort assets on screen 4562 by Date Acquired?
There are two ways to sort 4562 entries, directly from the main data entry screen, and from the grid entry list. The grid entry sort offers more fields by which you can sort.
Open the return containing the assets you want to sort. Begin by going to the main data entry screen tab that displays the screen link that opens the 4562 screen (Assets - Sales - Recapture tab in 1120, 1120S and 1065; Assets / Sales tab in 1041, Income tab in 1040; and the Form 990PF tab in 990 for the DEPR link).
To sort directly from the main data entry screen-
There are two options to get to the sort window:
- Enter "sort" in the selector field and press Enter.
- Right click on the 4562 Depreciation Detail screen link and select Sort Depreciation Items from the menu.
When the sort window appears, select the desired sort option and sort order. Click Preview to display the sort results and Save to maintain the sort. Using this method to sort the depreciable assets, it will also sort your assets in the View Mode on the FED DEPR Schedule.
To sort from the grid entry list (if you are using grid data entry) -
Click the link that you use to open the depreciation screen to open the grid entry list. Click the header of the field by which you wish to sort the assets. The direction of the sort reverses each time you click. Click Save to maintain the sort.
