Before you can post depreciation expense to the general ledger, you must preview or print the depreciation journal. It's also a good idea to print the journal for your records. If you review the depreciation journal and find errors, you can clear the depreciation calculations, make any corrections to the assets or depreciation tables, and recalculate depreciation.

Any depreciation expense that you posted to the general ledger must be reversed through a journal entry transaction in the General Ledger module.
